Healthy Options: Mediterranean Inspired Turkey Lentil Meatballs


turkey lentil meatballs

Everyone needs a dish every once in a while that just makes you feel healthy.  The problem is, many times those dishes leave you feeling hungry as well.

I had some lentils that had been sitting in my pantry for quite some time and had to use them up.  I just happened to come across a post that used cooked lentils as a filler for some turkey meatballs and they seemed right up my alley.  Of course, I had to put my own spin on things and make my own Sriracha hummus, but you do whatever you feel like doing.  I also added some freshly ground cumin and coriander to the meatballs during the mixing process.

I warmed up some whole wheat flatbread on my Baking Steel that I keep in my oven.  It was already warm from baking the lentil meatballs, so that was easy.  Spread some hummus on the bread after quartering it up, top with a meatball, then some yogurt sauce, place some greens and garnish with a bit of really good extra virgin olive oil.

It is a very satisfying dish and I’m sure you will feel good about yourself after eating it.  Look there’s even greens!  Hell you’ll feel so good, go ahead and enjoy a beer with your meal like I did.  Cheers!

I live a crazy, eventful, fast-paced lifestyle. Mainly because of trying to juggle all of life's curveballs and adventures. I love my wife Elizabeth and my baby girl Arya. When I'm not spending time with them I am blogging about food, creating art, sipping craft beer and educating my elementary students on a daily basis. Live life!
