Ingredients

  • 1

    pound ground turkey

  • 3/4

    cup cooked quinoa

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2

    green onions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1

    tablespoon soy sauce

  • 2

    teaspoons sesame oil

  • 1

    teaspoon Sriracha, or more, to taste

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

  • FOR THE SAUCE:

  • 1/4

    cup soy sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1

    tablespoon freshly grated ginger

  • 1

    tablespoon brown sugar, packed

  • 1

    teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1

    teaspoon Sriracha, or more, to taste

  • 2

    teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9x13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, quinoa, garlic, onions, egg, soy sauce, sesame oil, Sriracha, salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 18-20 meatballs. Place meatballs onto the prepared baking dish and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until all sides are browned and meatballs are cooked through. To make the sauce, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, sugar, sesame oil, Sriracha and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan over medium high heat. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Stir into soy sauce mixture until thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve meatballs immediately with sauce, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds.
