So what do moms do? We squeeze in veggies wherever we can! We switch it up, we try new things and we pray for success! Tonight we did a little twist on an old favorite and everyone cleaned their plates! Even daddy!
In our house when everyone cleans their plates, we have dessert! And tonight, it won't be spaghetti!
1 lb lean ground turkey
1/3c ground flaxseed meal
1/4 c almond milk
3 tbsp diced onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 c chopped parsley or spinach
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp EVOO
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
Mix flaxseed and milk together in a bowl and set to the side for 5-10 minutes. Sautéed onion and garlic in skillet for 3-5 minutes. Combine with remaining ingredients and mix well with your hands until all ingredients are incorporated. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet 1 inch apart. Bake at 350* for 15-18 minutes until they start to brown.
Serve over spaghetti squash (pictured), zucchini noodles,whole grain pasta or on a toasted whole grain roll as a meatball sub!
Add 1/4 c pasta sauce (I use organic marinara and I add finely chopped veggies to it) and toss lightly. Enjoy!
