Instructions

For the Meatballs

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a baking pan with cooking spray or olive oil then set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the meatballs and mix well.
  • Use your hands to mix everything together and roll the mixture into meatballs.
  • Place the meatballs on the baking sheet, separating them a little bit so they can bake evenly.
  • Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until they are evenly brown. (This recipe makes 22 meatballs.)

For the Mashed Cauliflower

  • Steam the head of cauliflower by filling a large pot with about 2 cups of water and place a steamer basket in the bottom.
  • Bring the water to a boil. Meanwhile cut the cauliflower head up into large pieces and remove the stem from the cauliflower.
  • Place the cauliflower into the steamer basket.
  • Cover the pot and steam until the cauliflower is fork tender (6-8 minutes).
  • Remove from the heat and let the cauliflower cool down for 5 minutes.
  • Place the steamed cauliflower in a bowl and add the chicken broth or milk. Using an immersion blender mash the cauliflower. (You can also use a food processor if you prefer.)
  • When the cauliflower is completely smooth, add butter, parmesan, garlic powder, salt, and ground black pepper. Stir well to combine.
  • Taste to adjust the seasoning.
  • To serve: Serve a big scoop of mashed cauliflower with 3 turkey meatballs and marinate sauce on top.
