Mealthy tip:

Serve with soba or rice noodles mixed with sesame oil, Sriracha, and soy sauce. Add some veggies and avocado. They can also be served as an appetizer with toothpicks.

Replace turkey with beef or chicken. Replace soy sauce with tamari soy sauce or liquid aminos to make gluten-free.

This is my new favorite recipe to go with my soba noodles! The dipping sauce is so yummy, I wish I would have made more. I'm sure the recipe also works well with ground beef, but the turkey is a nice alternative for me because I'm cutting out red meat. I love it.

These meatballs were perfect as an appetizer. The ingredients list for the sauce was a little intimidating but I love the way they turned out. I didn't have coconut aminos so I subbed in an extra tablespoon of soy sauce. All in all, this recipe was really quick and easy and the sauce was perfect. The pressure cooker keeps the meatballs tender, not dried out or overcooked like the oven can sometimes do. I would love to make them again so.
