Sriracha Sesame Turkey Meatballs

Today the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are sharing all kinds of meatball recipes with you! Appetizers, soups, main dishes, and even dessert meatballs! You will be amazed at the flavors and variety and I’m excited to share with you Sriracha-Sesame Turkey Meatballs

Sriracha Sesame Turkey Meatballs

I was pretty excited to find out our theme today was for meatballs as I had just come across this recipe for Sriracha-Sesame Turkey Meatballs served over polenta in a recent issue of Cooking Light. I found another recipe in the same Cooking Light issue for a cauliflower bean puree that really looked a lot like polenta to me and since we are not huge polenta eaters, I thought the cauliflower bean puree would be a great substitute!

The meatballs themselves are super easy. You just combine some sesame oil with the ground turkey and shape them into a ball.  I cooked mine in a skillet but you could easily bake these instead.

Once the meatballs are cooked you remove them from the pan and stir in your sauce ingredients. Return the meatballs to the skillet and coat them with the sauce bringing them back up to a warm temperature.

While the Sriracha-Sesame Turkey Meatballs were in the works I started on the cauliflower puree. It was pretty simple, cauliflower that had been chopped fine (I used my food processor), some mashed white beans, chicken broth, and a little bit of white cornmeal. My delicious results are pictured below!

    Aren’t Cooking Light recipes the best? I’m always thinking, why didn’t I think of that! haha This looks delicious and I love that it’s still got flavor but is a little more figure friendly.

    I love the idea of your puree instead of polenta! But I’m guessing those saucy bites taste great over anything!

    My husband is a big sriracha fan so sure he’d love these. The puree sounds really interesting too – very comforting!

    I know this is supposed to be about the meatballs, but I cannot stop eyeing that cauliflower puree. It looks so good! I was just writing up a post yesterday that had cauliflower in it and saying how I don’t have enough recipes with it. The whole family eats and loves it, we just don’t have it often. Super glad to see it paired with something as delicious as meatballs!! Turkey is my second favorite thing to use for meatballs too!

    Sounds and looks delicious! I love Sriracha but I’ve never had it this way. I also love the puree idea and it sounds interesting. I would be willing to try it out.

    this dish looks so delicious and easy to make. I love meatballs but I don’t like using ground beef therefore I think this is just perfect for us!

    So normally I would say I want my meatballs over spaghetti…but you had me at sriracha here. All of these delicious seasonings in these meatballs makes it totally acceptable to cut back and use turkey instead. We do the same thing when we make burrito fillings as you can’t tell the difference once all the seasonings go in. Now I am craving meatballs for breakfast…what are you doing to me, Shelby?? 🙂

  32. Love that you’ve served them over a cauliflower puree. Looks incredible.

  33. Cooking Light is great and they offer up wonderful ideas on how to flavor with spice instead of fat as is evident in your lovely recipe.
