Thai Turkey Meatballs with Red Curry Sauce



We LOVE Thai flavors at our house!  I realize that if you've never worked with some of these ingredients they can be intimidating.  But trust me, they are so delicious when used together.  Don't be scared!  Get in there and try it!  It's really quite easy to make Thai food! 




Thai Turkey Meatballs with Red Curry Sauce 


Meatball recipe: 

1 lb. ground turkey 
2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
2 minced garlic cloves
1 cup shredded zuccchini (liquid squeezed out) 
1 tbsp. fish sauce
2 tbsp. fresh basil 
1 teaspoon red curry paste
2 tbsp. cocnut milk 
1 jalapeno (you can omit if you want) 
1/4 cup green onions 
1 tbsp. coconut oil  (replace with olive oil if you don't have this) 

Red Curry Sauce: 

1 1/2 cups coconut milk 
3 tbsp. tomato paste 
1 teaspoon red curry paste
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flake 

Mix all the meatball ingredients together in a large bowl, and then form into small meatballs.  Heat coconut oil on medium-high heat and brown meatballs about 2 - 3 minutes on each side.  DO NOT COOK ALL THE WAY THROUGH.  They are going to sit in this yummy sauce you're about to make and cook through.  

In a separate bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients.  Once the meatballs are browned, pour the curry sauce over them. Turn the heat down and simmer the meatballs for about 15 minutes.

 

Serve with your favorite brown rice.  

I added more red curry paste than this recipe calls for, because we like it hot.  Just go easy with this ingredient, because it is potent!
