1 pound ground turkey -- (I use dark meat - it holds up better and has more
1 large clove garlic
1 large bunch fresh cilantro -- including maybe 1" stem
2 tablespoons olive oil
About 1 hour before actually baking, in a food processor, puree the
cilantro, garlic and olive oil, creating a "pesto". Mix well with the ground
turkey. Season with salt & fresh ground pepper to taste. Let marinate for 1
hour or more.
Preheat oven to 350. Form meatballs (my family likes walnut size) and bake
for 1/2 hour - 45 minutes or until done through. You can serve rice with it
for the rest of the family if you want!
