Moroccan Baked Turkey Meatballs with Lemon and Dill Sauce
This is one of my absolute favourite recipes to make at the moment - its light and bright but super filling, and I love to serve it over zucchini noodles (zoodles), or cauliflower rice.
I highly recommend making a double batch of meatballs as they are a great ‘grab and go’ option for when time is tight and can be served with a salad, soup or in a veggie wrap, and I love the sauce as a sneaky way to get the microbiome boosting probiotics in without even thinking about it!
