Its Thanksgiving week!! I usually get the question if I am meal prepping for this week or if I am only doing a half meal prep, which is ironic because I especially look forward to meal prepping for this week. I try and find the most delicious fall recipes to make and enjoy a full week of Thanksgiving type food! Plus, once Thanksgiving is over I always have a couple comforting meals to ease me back on track without feeling like I am going "back to the diet." Honestly though, meal prepping delicious meals that I truly look forward to eating is always my goal. Anyways, I am getting distracted from this amazing recipe. This picture DOES NOT do the recipe justice! These meatballs turned out so delicious! Not only is there pumpkin in the meatballs, but pumpkin is also in the sauce, which turned out equally as delicious and also full of savory herbs and spices! I doubled the meatball portion of the recipe and made the sauce as is, besides increasing the tomato sauce and pumpkin puree a tiny bit, to get me a total of 10 meals. I served these meatballs over zucchini noodles, but the original recipe served them over sweet potato noodles. These meatballs can be served with any side of your liking though! Since zucchini noodles don't keep very well I only prepped three days worth of those and will prep more mid-way through the week. If this recipe even sounds a little bit appealing to you then I definitely recommend giving it a try! I absolutely loved this one!
Turkey Pumpkin Meatballs with Creamy Harvest Tomato Sauce
To Make Meatballs:
*If your mixture is sticky, wet your hands a bit before rolling into balls, as needed.
**Blend your coconut milk to a smooth consistency before adding. If you prefer a slightly thinner sauce, use 1/4 cup coconut milk and 3/4 cup broth instead of 1/2 and 1/2.
