Turkey, Quinoa, Zucchini meatballs

I made some delicious meatballs on Sunday. They were so good I forgot to take a picture of them!!! Just look at the ingredients and tell me if it doesn't sound super yummy to you as well... :)

1 1/4 lb ground turkey
1 cup cooked quinoa (Make a whole batch and have it all week!)
1/2 medium onion, grated
3/4 cup grated zucchini
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried chile flakes (plus more if you want it to be spicier, which I suggest)
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp ground oregano
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 egg, beaten

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan in aluminum foil.
2. Using your food processor, shred the zucchini and onion.
3. In a bowl, combine ground turkey, cooked quinoa, grated onion, garlic, zucchini, parsley,
dried chile flakes, soy sauce, oregano, ground pepper and egg.
4. Mix well to combine. Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon portion of the turkey mixture, form meatballs by
rolling between the palms of your hands. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet,
spacing evenly.
5. Bake until the meatballs are firm to the touch and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Flip the meatballs over and cook for another 5 minutes so they get browned on every side
6. While the meatballs are cooking, heat the tomato sauce in a large saucepan set over medium
7. ENJOY! Eat them with tomato sauce, in a sandwich, with salad, with pasta by themselves... so yum!!
