1 garlic clove, crushed

2 tsp of fresh chives, chopped

400g turkey mince (lean)

2 cups of cherry tomatoes

½ cup of grated parmesan cheese

2 cups of broccoli, chopped

2 tbsp of fresh basil, chopped

1 cup of brown rice, to serve


1. Heat oven to 200°C / 400°F.

2. In a large bowl, combine the onion, carrot, garlic, turkey and chives. Season to taste with pepper. Mix well.

3. Shape into meatballs and put in a small baking tray. Cook for around 20 minutes. 

4. After 20 mins, drain juices off the meatballs, pour cherry tomatoes over and sprinkle with the parmesan. Cook for another 20 minutes.
