Lately I’ve been OBSESSED amongst meatballs. I’ve been making them every calendar week (sometimes twice) for the past month because they are then easy, salubrious, as well as delicious! And perfect to make for meal prep. I’ve fifty-fifty been heating up a pair for snacks instead of reaching for a protein bar (or a million handfuls of granola as well as/or chips) out of the pantry. SO adept!
I tin’t fifty-fifty set about to enjoin you how flavorful these meatballs are. They’re made amongst lean ground turkey, garlic, fresh oregano, fresh parsley, fresh mint, in addition to lemon zest. And they’re baked and then they’re super healthy!
The tzatziki sauce puts them over the top. Can I just swallow tzatziki amongst a spoon? Is that acceptable?
This is my basic recipe for tzatziki and it never fails me. I love dipping pita in it, chips, or, just eating it alongside a spoon.
In addition to the tzatziki, I added grape tomatoes, chopped burn roasted reddish peppers, ruby onion, feta, too a crush of lemon. Pure perfection.
Also, can nosotros verbalise virtually how delicious butter lettuce is? It’sec and then soft and tender in addition to I want every salad I swallow to live made of butter lettuce. I normally become for mixed greens or arugula, just I demand to make the switch over to butter lettuce more than oft.
Since butter lettuce is so tender as well as delicate, you could double up on the lettuce and business them alongside romaine, or fifty-fifty cabbage or radicchio. Or whatsoever heartier lettuce! Not necessary, but they volition live messy if yous don’t! ( Which I don’t listen 😉 )
Speaking of salads, these meatballs would be simply equally delicious on a bed of greens, with the tzatziki every bit a dressing as well as a squash of lemon! Just if yous want a bowl meal that’sec a tiny chip less messy!
But lettuce wraps are and so fun aren’t they? I intend I but dear anything that slightly resembles a taco. Who’second with me?
