  • 1 lb turkey
  • 1/3 cup almond flour I use THIS brand
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried or fresh garlic I'm a garlic fiend, you can add less if you're not
  • salt
  • pepper
  • basil to sprinkle overtop
  • 1 tbsp unflavored coconut oil found HERE
  • 2 cups of organic spaghetti sauce I like THIS one
  • optional: sprinkle of pecorino romano a sheep's milk cheese


  • Mix the turkey, egg, salt, pepper, oregano, almond flour, garlic, and romano (if using) with your hands. Get in there with your hands! Have some fun with your food!
  • Melt the coconut oil in a pretty big pan on medium to medium-high heat that you can cover with a lid.
  • While that's melting, form the meat into balls.
  • Fry the meatballs on both sides until golden brown. We're not looking to cook through, just get a nice sear.
  • Once you sear them, turn the heat to low and add the spaghetti sauce.
  • Cover and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with basil and serve. 


Serve! This would be amazing with spiralized noodles.
