If you're looking for something sweet, savory and spicey look no further. While Evolves owner Blake is usually on the Cholula bandwagon Sriracha is a close second. It’s also a really great freezer meal to make in bulk. Did we mention that this recipe takes just about 30 minutes to make?

Honey Sriracha Glazed Meatballs

Serves: 8 Servings

INGREDIENTS

For the meatballs:

  • 2 lb. lean ground turkey

  • 1 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped

  • ½ tsp. garlic powder

  • ½ tsp. salt

  • ½ tsp. black pepper

For the sauce:

  • ¼ cup Sriracha

  • 3 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 3 Tbsp rice vinegar

  • 3 Tbsp honey

  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ tsp. toasted sesame oil

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a large bowl, mix together turkey, breadcrumbs, eggs, green onions, garlic powder and salt/pepper until well combined. Shape mixture into 1½-inch balls (you'll make roughly 40 balls) and place spaced apart on prepared baking sheets lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

  • Bake meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

  • While the meatballs are baking, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking continuously. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes (the sauce will start to thicken) then toss with the meatballs.

  • Serve immediately over brown rice and top with green onions and a few sesame seeds. Enjoy!

We also like to eat this recipe with zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash. A lot of stores are carrying pre cut spiraled noodles but if you get stuck we ordered a cheap hand held spiralizer off of amazon for under $10 bucks.
