  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 1/2-2 cups baby carrots depending on how you would like your texture
  • 1/2 whole red onion
  • 1/2 whole red bell pepper
  • 1/2 whole green bell pepper
  • 2 tbsps Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp ground parsley dried
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  • Combine everything but the ground turkey to a high powered blender or food processor and pulse until no big chunks are left. You may have to stir in between to have a common texture.
  • Add the newly chopped ingredients to the turkey, and mix together.
  • Shape the meatballs into 1 - 1/2" sizes. I took my 1 1/2 tablespoon, scooped the mixture and dropped on a foil lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let stand for five minutes to cool.
