Author's Notes

Look for “ground turkey” vs. “lean ground turkey”.

You can find boxed spinach in the frozen section – look for chopped instead of a whole so you can skip a step.

Instead of fresh garlic, substitute with 1 tsp jarred minced garlic. This is usually found in the produce section.

Aluminum foil sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray can be used in place of parchment paper.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2
Combine Ground Turkey (1 lb) , White Onion (1/2) , Baby Bell Peppers (3) , Greek Seasoning (2 Tbsp) , Club Crackers (20) , Kalamata Olives (1/4 cup) , Garlic (1 tsp) , Feta Cheese (1 cup) , Frozen Spinach (3/4 cup) , and Sea Salt (1 tsp) until thoroughly combined.
Step 3
Using a cookie scoop, form evenly sized meatballs, placing them on the parchment-lined sheet pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator and set a timer for 30 minutes.
Step 4
Meanwhile, prepare the Tzatziki. Combine Plain Greek Yogurt (1 cup) , Cucumber (1/2) , 1 Tbsp of Lemon Juice (1) , Garlic (1 clove) , Olive Oil (1 tsp) , Fresh Dill (1 tsp) , and Sea Salt (1 tsp) , cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Step 5
Bring Water (2 cups) to a boil in a medium-sized sauce pan. Add Sea Salt (1 tsp) and Israeli Couscous (1 cup) , and stir. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until water has been absorbed.
Step 6
When the timer goes off, remove the meatballs from the refrigerator and place them in the oven. Bake meatballs for 15-20 minutes, until internal temperature reads 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
Step 7
Garnish meatballs with Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (1/2 handful) and serve with tzatziki and couscous.
