Tahini Turkey Balls

Updated: May 1, 2023

One of my favorite quick and easy meals to make, is Turkey Balls of any flavor! They are great as a sandwich, over rice, pasta, quinoa, or by themselves.

These Asian Inspired Turkey Meatballs are usually my go to ground turkey dinner, but decided to switch up the flavor profile with something a bit more “summery” .

If you love hummus, you will devour these balls. ((Go Ahead and laugh))

Lemon Tahini Vinaigrette:

6-8 cloves of garlic sautéed in light olive oil (or a whole head, you do you)

1 Lemon juiced

1/2 cup Tahini

2 Tbl Honey

1 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Curry

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Powder

1/4 cup- 1/2 cup of Water to thin out

Whisk together - set aside

Tahini Turkey Balls:


1 Lb Ground Turkey

1/2 Onion Grated

1 Carrot Grated

2 Tbl Tahini

1/4 C Panko

1 Egg

6-8 Cloves of Sautéed Garlic ((I sautee my garlic first and let it cool before adding to my mix- I like the flavor better))

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Powder

1 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Curry

salt & pepper

If you have time, let your meat marinade in the fridge for at least an hour. When ready, roll your balls- I like to use an Ice cream scoop to keep them

all uniform. ((I then set in the fridge again just to firm up after rolling ))

To Cook:

Bake in 400 degree oven for 12-18 minutes until the center reaches 165

These are totally optional, but while your meatballs are setting, whip up some crunchy chickpeas! These are awesome as a light snack, a salad topper or just right out of the airfryer!

Whisk together

Olive oil, cinnamon, ginger, curry, garlic, cumin, onion, salt, vanilla and a touch of date syrup.

Toss with two cans of drained chickpeas ((because one can is never enough!))

Airfy until crunchy ((400 degrees, stirring every 5 minutes until crunchy))

Serve Meatballs over Quinoa & Roasted Cauliflower; top with Lemon Tahini Vinaigrette, Crunchy Chickpeas, chopped onion - and a little piece of garlic naan ((parsley would be great too but I didn’t have any))!!!

Even better the second day! I don’t know how some people hate leftovers! They are my fave! ((And these Culture Pop Sodas are Ahhh-mazing!))
