Turkey and zucchini combined with olives and feta result in super moist and flavorful meatballs. These can be served alone, over couscous, over rice, or even over a bed of lettuce for a main dish salad.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 small zucchini, grated and squeezed dry
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 10 pitted kalamata olives, diced
  • 4 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning (such as Cavender's®)
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup jarred roasted red pepper strips
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 2 Combine turkey, zucchini, egg, bread crumbs, olives, feta cheese, and Greek seasoning in a large bowl. Mix until evenly combined.
  3. 3 Form meatballs using an ice cream scoop and place onto a baking sheet.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes.
