Turkey Meatballs in Thyme, Rhubarb and Orange Sauce
At Gousto, we believe turkey should be enjoyed more than just once a year during the festive period. So we designed this Turkey Meatballs in Thyme, Rhubarb and Orange Sauce recipe in which turkey is matched with the highlight of the season, rhubarb. This fruity vegetable isn’t just for deserts – it should be welcomed onto the plates of main courses more often! It not only has a robust flavour, but eating a wide variety of fruit and vegetables, such as rhubarb, helps to ensure a well-balanced diet (proven in this dish as it boasts 4 of your 5-a-day!).
If you’ve never made your own meatballs before, this recipe is the perfect introduction to this invaluable skill. Once mastered, you can make endless variations to these little balls of flavour and introduce your favourite herbs & spices into the mix as well. You could even try a blend of different minced meats. As a quick tip, when shaping the meatballs wet your hands for a less-mess method as this stops the meat from sticking to your palms.
