Asian Meatballs with Pea Pods

   Posted by: anj68   in Dairy Free, Gluten Free, recipe

I try to find time to cook healthy meals.  Mixing my sense of historical cooking, my love of ethnic foods, and the need and want to eat healthier, I challenge myself to create new recipes.  Some will have a historical slant and others will have more international flair; this particular recipe is Asian influenced.  It is low carb and low-fat and has plenty of protein, fruit and vegetable servings.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

Asian Style Chicken Meatballs

Asian Style Chicken Meatballs

1 lb of ground chicken
1/2 cup of pineapple, minced
2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1 egg
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice powder
2 tbsp of soy sauce

Combine all off the ingredients in a non-metal bowl and blend well.

Grab a heaping tablespoon of mixture and place on a greased cookie sheet. Continue until mixture is gone. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

While the meatballs are cooking gather the rest
of the ingredients:

2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 cups snap pea pods
Optional: 1 cup red peppers, sliced thin or more pineapple in 1/2 inch cubes

Once the meatballs are done, heat up a skillet and add the oil. Once hot, add the meatballs and vegetables together and continue cooking until the vegetables are el dente (bright green, not overcooked).
