Several of you asked for a way to add ginger to your meals. I decided to experiment and add ginger powder to my meatball recipe. In my last blog I discussed the benefits of garlic and ginger. Click here to read Spices to Help Fight Cold and Flu Season.
This recipe is packed with veggies and spices. I used Bragg's Amino Acids which is natural alternative to soy sauce. It has a similar taste without all of the salt and chemicals that are contained in soy sauce. What are some ways that you add ginger to your diet?
1 pound of ground turkey meat
½ small yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup of diced mushrooms
4 large or 6 small scallions, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of ground ginger powder
2 tablespoons of Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids
Sea Salt and black pepper to taste
Sauté garlic, carrots, mushrooms and onions in olive oil with a little salt, and pepper
Make meatballs: mix turkey with sautéed veggie mixture, spices, scallions, amino acids, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, cover bottom of pan with olive oil. Place meatballs in pan and cook, turning, until browned all over and cooked inside, about 8 minutes per batch. If desired, keep warm in a 200-degree oven until ready to serve. Garnish with additional sliced scallions, if desired.
