Luscious Turkey Meatballs in a Simple Sauce

Serves 6-8

Meatballs:
700g Turkey Mince
1 Egg
3 x tbsp Breadcrumbs
3 x tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 x tbsp Finely Chopped Onion and Celery
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp dried thyme
Malden Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Sauce:
1 Onion peeled
1 Stick Celery
Olive Oil
1 Clove Garlic minced
1 tsp Dried Thyme
2 x 400g Tins Plum Tomatoes
700ml water
1 tsp Sugar
Malden Salt and Black pepper

Put the celery and onion into a food processor and whizz until really fine. Keep two tbsp of this aside for the meatball mixture.

Heat some oil in a pan and add the onion and celery. Add the thyme and cook gently for around 10 mins.

Add the tins of tomatoes and the water.

Add the sugar and salt and pepper seasoning.

Bring to the boil and reduce heat to simmer.

Whilst the sauce is simmering prepare meatballs.

Simply add all of the meatball ingredients to a large bowl and thoroughly mix with your hands until everything is well combined.

Shape into small balls and place each one on a baking tray.

When you are done drop them into the sauce, spread them out nice and evenly.

Cook for about 30-40 mins.

Serve with rice or pasta. For a bit of extra health as these babies are very low fat, you could serve with brown rice.
