Zucchini and turkey meatballs

Despite my love for breadcrumbs and ground meat, meatballs were never one of my favorite foods - something to do with the texture or having all the meat concentrated in one bite (as opposed to a meat sauce). These ones were pretty good though, and healthier too; instead of the egg and breadcrumbs often found in meatballs, these ones are just meat and veggies, with plenty of the latter. We served them on black rice for a nice well-rounded meal.

Turkey and zucchini meatballs inspiration from one lovely life
Serves 4
1 lb. ground turkey
2 c zucchini, grated (leave peel on)
1 small onion, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Toss turkey with zucchini, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mixture will be quite wet.
On a greased baking sheet scoop meatballs and then bake in a preheated 400F oven for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through.
