  2. Chop off the ends of carrots and zucchini and peel back the onion and garlic.
  3. Take one cup of old-fashioned rolled oats and put that in the food processor to make oat flour. It takes about 30 seconds to blend it. Add it to your bowl. You can also use whole-wheat flour.
  4. Throw the carrots, zucchini, spinach, onion, and garlic into a food processor and blend well.

  5. In a large bowl, mix in the rolled oats flour and 2 eggs with the processed veggies and ground turkey. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, turmeric, salt and pepper.
  6. Combine well with your hands. You can dip your fingers in cold water if the mixture sticks to your hands.
  7. Heat a frying pan with olive oil on medium-high heat.
  8. Form the meatball mixture into a dozen 1-2 inch balls.
  9. Place the meatballs in the hot pan and let them cook for 5 minutes on each side. I will prop them up on the side of the pan to cook the meatballs on each side. Cook until golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Freeze the rest. And thaw and cook when you're ready. I love doubling this recipe and freezing the leftovers. It makes for a fast and easy meal.

Recipe Notes

You can bake the meatballs at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or cook them on a skillet turning them frequently. Baking them in the oven is often easier, but doesn't give you the crunchy outside shell.
