Serves: 6 servings
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Ginger Coconut Rice
  • 1 ¼ cup uncooked Royal Basmati Rice
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
Chili Garlic Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • Chopped cucumber
  • Julienned carrots
  • Fresh chopped cilantro
  1. Prepare the meatballs: Preheat the oven to 350. In a dish, combine the lemon juice, curry paste, and salt. Whisk to combine. Add the curry mixture to a bowl along with the ground turkey, oats, onion and garlic. Use your hands to incorporate all ingredients until combined. Form the mixture into 24 meatballs and place on a lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
  2. Prepare the rice: While the meatballs are cooking, add the rice, coconut milk, olive oil, and salt to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once the liquid has reduced slightly below the rice level, turn the heat down to low. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Uncover and fluff the rice with a fork. Stir in the minced ginger.
  3. Make the chili garlic sauce: Combine the chili sauce ingredients in a blender, magic bullet, or by whisking.
  4. Assemble the dish: Serve the meatballs on a bed of rice with sliced cucumbers and carrots. Drizzle chili garlic sauce and sprinkle cilantro over the top.
