Servings 4 people


  • 1 lb ground turkey meat
  • ¼ cup rice crumbs I grab my rice crumbs at Trader Joe's. These are a great gluten-free option. Panko bread crumbs can be substituted.
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Italian herb mix
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Mix together the turkey meat, rice crumbs/panko, onion, egg, sun-dried tomatoes, Italian herbs, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper.
  • Ensure that the spices and condiments have been well combined with the meat. Use a 1 ½ Tablespoon scoop and form balls with the meat mixture. Place the meatballs onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Ensure they are spread apart for even cooking.
  • Drizzle/spray 1 Tablespoon of olive oil over the top and bake at 385 degrees for 20-28 minutes.
