BLW Dinner

Turkey meatballs with cabbage in tomato sauce. BLW

Turkey meatballs with shredded cabbage are our favourite dinner. They aren’t only yummy but hide a very healthy vegetable inside – cabbage. They are not really paleo because I use rice to “glue” them together. They are best stewed in tomato sauce.

Porcje 30
Turkey meatballs with shredded cabbage and rice inside of them are just the perfect dinner! You'll get approx 30 meatballs from just 1/2 kg of mince because you mix it with cabbage and rice. You'll end up with dinner for 2 days and you can still freeze some 🙂

  1. • ½ small white cabbage, shredded+ 1 tsp salt
  2. • ½ kg minced turkey
  3. • 1 cup cooked white rice (1/2 cup raw)
  4. • 2 small onions
  5. • 2 eggs
  6. • seasoning: 1 teaspoon pepper, 1/3 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp salt, 1 heaped tsp dill
  7. • buckwheat flour for coating
  8. • 3 tablespoons ghee (for frying)
  9. • sauce: 2/3 bottle of tomato passata + 1/2 cup water, 1 clove of garlic, 3 bay leaves, parsley (as pictured)
  1. 1. Cook rice and let cool down.
  2. 2. Shred cabbage finely in a tall bowl and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Use your hands to mix. Now "punch" cabbage with your fist 😉 to press it down tightly. Cabbage has to release some liquid. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes.
  3. 3. Grate onions.
  4. 4. Squeeze the juice out of cabbage: Take a handful at a time and squeeze out the water over the sink. Place squeezed cabbage in a clean bowl.
  5. 5. Beat eggs in a large tall bowl. Add spices and onions and mix with a fork/spoon. Add meat and stir with a fork again. Add the rice and cabbage and mix by hand.
  6. 6. Roll the mixture into approx.30 balls. Toss each ball in some flour. Fry on a large pan over medium heat [flaten the balls on the pan]. Don't let them brown! We want to stew them in a sauce and frying is only to ensure they don't fall apart.
  7. 7. Place the chops on the bottom of a large pot. Pour the sauce and simmer under a lid for about 45 minutes - until the cabbage is completely soft.
  8. Serve with veggies, rice/buckwheat/potatoes.
