  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (Italian or plain)
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup homemade or store-bought marinara sauce


Preheat the oven to 500°F. Generously grease a baking dish or nonstick mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, stir together the milk and breadcrumbs and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, breadcrumb mixture, egg, minced garlic, chopped parsley, grated Parmesan, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Use your hands to thoroughly combine the mixture and then shape it into balls using 2 to 3 tablespoons of meat per meatball.

Arrange the meatballs in a single layer in the prepared baking dish or nonstick mini muffin pan. Bake the meatballs for 15 minutes until they are cooked through.

While the meatballs bake, prepare the quinoa according to package directions.
When ready to serve, divide the quinoa among plates then place the meatballs on top. Spoon the marinara sauce over the meatballs and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese.
