Serves: 25 meatballs
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 lb ground turkey or chicken
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1 red chile, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

Almond Dipping Sauce
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp chili paste or hot sauce (sugar-free)
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ⅛ tsp pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.
  2. Place all of the meatball ingredients except for the olive oil spray in a large bowl. Mix well with your hands. If the mixture seems a bit wet, ad a bit more almond flour until everything comes together. Using a cookie scoop, roll out each of the meatballs and place them on the greased baking sheet.
  3. Spray the tops of the meatballs generously with the oil spray, then bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. While the meatballs cook, make the dipping sauce.
  5. Add all of the sauce ingredients to a medium mixing bowl. Whisk together and set aside.
  6. Serve the meatballs warm with the dipping sauce on the side!
