Ground meat can sometime turn out dry and mealy so my main goal with these meatballs was to make sure they were flavorful and juicy. The full pound of spinach ensures that this meatball recipe was going to be juicy! The combination of herbs and spices make it super flavorful as well. These Turkey and Spinach Meatballs taste great alone or with my Nomato Sauce.

This recipe makes about two dozen meatballs. That may seem like a lot but we always eat the leftovers. These meatballs don’t last more than 48 hours in our house. Even my toddler loves them and eats them like apples.

If you don’t have two adults and one very hungry toddler, I totally get it. You can easily freeze any extras.

There are not a lot of ingredients in this Carrot Ginger Soup but it’s packed with flavor.  Carrots are surprisingly sweet and delicious in a soup.  They really don’t need much.  I’m thrilled to have such a healthy and easy recipe to add to the dinner recipe rotation.

This recipe is also great frozen. If you’re interested, just add your leftovers in a airtight container that’s appropriate for the freezer. I always place the container in the refrigerator to cool the dish before placing it in the freezer. This step is especially helpful if you use glass containers. I use mason jars a lot when freezing. Cooling the container allows the glass and the liquid to slowly adjust temperatures instead of such a rapid change that will break the glass.
