This recipe for thai turkey meatballs from the Sweet as Sugar Cookies blog mashes up familiar flavors from Thanksgiving and Thai cuisine. As well as being a healthier alternative to red meat in general, these meatballs are also packed with some other healing fall ingredients like ginger and garlic, plus a few vegetables for good measure.

Ground turkey meat is combined with grated zucchini and carrots, lime zest, an egg, onion, soy and fish sauce and panko bread to bind everything together. Rather than serving atop meatballs, this unique turkey-thai hybrid could probably stand alone as an appetizer. With this in mind, Sweet as Sugar Cookies also suggest serving the meatballs with a sweet chili dipping sauce to add an extra kick to the recipe.
