For the Meatballs

  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 inch ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 bunch green onion, thinly sliced, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sesame seeds

For the Sauce

  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fish sauce

  1. In a large bowl, combine turkey, ginger, garlic, half of the green onions, salt, and pepper. 
  2. Form the ground turkey mixture into 2-inch balls.
  3. In a large skillet or saute pan (or the base of your stovetop-friendly slow cooker), melt the ghee. Fry the meatballs for 2-3 minutes per side until browned, then transfer to slow cooker. 
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all ingredients for sauce. Pour onto the meatballs.
  5. Set slow cooker to high heat and let cook for two hours. 
  6. Garnish with sesame seeds and the remaining green onion.
  7. Serve alongside cauliflower rice or simple white rice (basmati is my favorite).
