Slow-Cooker Turkey Meatballs

In This Article

In this recipe, lightened-up turkey meatballs cook low and slow in a fresh and aromatic pomodoro sauce. In place of pasta, we add a bit of starchiness (and a boost of fiber) with lacinato kale and canned chickpeas. This meal is a great one to assemble before the work or school day, then dish up when you’re ready to serve dinner. The meatballs hold well on the warm setting of your slow cooker until you’re ready to eat.

Try this recipe for dinner after a workout. Because the prep is done ahead of time, it’s the perfect opportunity to spend your evening doing a hard workout and then refuel with protein, carbohydrates and a vegetable in a hearty dish.
