Honey Sriracha Meatballs

You’re in for a spicy-sweet treat with this recipe! I’ve made this recipe a couple times already and I loved it! It’s the perfect combination of spicy and sweet! I didn’t have any sriracha, so I used Louisiana Hot Sauce instead. Can’t go wrong with hot sauce right? Correct! It was divine, but a little on the spicy side. The second time I made it, I decreased the amount of hot sauce and it was perfect! If you have kids, I would definitely decrease the spicy-ness if you want them to eat it. I paired it with some steam broccoli and a small portion of brown rice for dinner. I also ate it for lunch a couple times with a salad and some fruit. Hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients:

For the Meatballs:

  • 2 lb. Ground Turkey
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Green Onions, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup Sriracha
  • 3 tbsp. Reduced-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 3 tbsp. Rice Vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. Honey
  • 1 tbsp. Grated Fresh Ginger
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. toasted Sesame Oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together turkey, almond flour, eggs, green onions, garlic powder and salt/pepper until well combined. Shape mixture into 1-1/2 inch balls (you’ll make roughly 30-40 balls) and place apart on prepared baking sheets lightly sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.
  3. Bake meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.
  4. While meatballs are baking, combine all of the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking continuously. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes (the sauce will start to thicken) then toss with the meatballs.
  5. Serve immediately over a portion of brown/jasmine rice and top with green onions and a few sesame seeds (if you want to be fancy!)
