Curry Thai Turkey Meatballs
The time has finally come!! I have made these a few times and once posted the recipe on my snap chat (kelsmcgins), but for some reason hadn’t posted it here! When I decided to make Zucchini Pad Thai I thought these bad boys would go perfectly on top.
This sauce is BONKERS good too. It’s a lot like the sauce I used in my Curry Almond Butter Chicken Salad! How could coconut oil, almond butter and curry powder not be amazing together? Healthy fats for the win!
On another note. I finally bought the Minimalist Baker’s food photography school! It is one of those purchases I have been dying to make and am so glad I did. Like those garnishes? I am about to garnish this WHOLE BLOG like mad. It just makes everything more fun right? Like WOW. She threw stuff all over those meatballs like she doesn’t even care about that burlap placemat. WHAT A BALLER!
You thought that right? No? Hmmm…
GARNISH!!! And sauce drizzle. I am a sucker for a good drizzle.
These zoodles though!!

These sound delicious! Will def be adding to my whole30 this month. And the pics look awesome. I am in need of a photography class so bad! Excited to hear what you think about the Minimalist Baker one.
Thanks!! It is delish! Loving her course so far, there is so much to learn!!
That looks delish!
Thanks Lorie!! 🙂
this flavor combo sounds delicious! And those pictures are gorgeous!
Thanks so much Rachel!! You gotta try them out! 🙂
You sure rocked the garnishes! Photos look amazing – as do these BALLZ! SO complex – I must try these asap and mix up my typical meatball routine!
Thanks Chrissa!! Gotta love the garnish – especially on balls!! 🙂
I loveee turkey meatballs and these sound like they’re packed full of flavour! Yum!
Definitely!! You have to give them a try! 🙂
Absolutely delicious…it makes food new again (and eating well even better)!
So glad to hear! They are one of my favorites! 🙂
How many servings would you say this feeds?
It makes about 4 servings!!
Kelsey, these are AH-MAY-ZING! The only problem with them is that I just embarrassed myself licking the remainder of the dipping sauce out of my little lunch container at the office. Thank you for the amazing recipe!
Haha YAY!! Seriously that sauce is addicting!! 🙂 So glad you loved it!!
Hi! I just discovered a load of food allergies and am trying Whole30 for the first time. This recipe looks delicious but I’m allergic to egg whites (cooked or raw). How would you recommend replacing the egg in the meatballs? Thanks!
Hmmm You can add a tablespoon of nut butter instead!
Looks great! Ready to try. What curry powder do you use as all curries aren’t created equal. We are island people (I cook regularly with Jamaican and Trinidadian curries but I also love Asian curries…hubby does not like the latter).
Could you use almond flour instead? It’s what I already have in my pantry.. 🙂
Yes for sure!
Made this recipe and followed it to a “t.” Made it alongside the zucchini pad thai and it is definitely going to be a family favorite. We’re on the Whole30 now, but will continue making it as we move into our “food freedom.” Also a great dish if you’re entertaining and others are not following the diet. Lots of great, bold flavors. Don’t feel like we’re missing out on anything with this dish!
That is so awesome!! Thanks!!
Can these meatballs be frozen and eaten at a later time??
