  • 1 lb organic ground turkey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp red curry paste, I used Thai Kitchen brand - it is compliant
  • 1 tsp dried basil


  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 tsp red curry paste
  • 1 can coconut milk, (full fat)



  • Preheat the oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix well using your hands. Form 1.5 inch balls (it should make about 12) and place onto the lined baking sheet. Bake the meatballs for 20 minutes


  • Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil over medium high heat. Add onion, garlic, and red pepper. Saute until the onion becomes translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add the red curry paste and stir for about 1-2 minutes. Add the coconut milk and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and reduce heat down to low.
  • When the meatballs are done, add them to the sauce and simmer for 1-2 additional minutes. Serve over caulirice, carrot noodles, or whatever you want! Enjoy!
