With sides: Kale chips & Garlic mashed potatoes

Want easy, healthy & delicious meatballs with a side of kale chips and garlic mashed potatoes? Look no further! Be sure to check it out below:


  • Mushrooms

  • Onions

  • Eggs

  • Olive oil spray (can also use canola, avocado, etc.)

  • Italian breadcrumbs

  • Ground turkey

  • Marinara/tomato sauce

  • Seasonings: black pepper, salt, garlic powder. Recommended: Italian herb blend

Additional ingredients for the sides (optional):

Kale chips:

  • Bag of Kale (any kind is fine, but I prefer curly kale)

  • Olive oil

  • Optional: chopped mushrooms

  • Seasonings: salt, black pepper and garlic powder

Garlic Mashed potatoes:

  • Potatoes (I prefer red potatoes)

  • Milk (can substitute non-dairy like almond, soy, etc.)

  • Plain Greek yogurt (can be nonfat)

  • Seasonings: black pepper, garlic powder, salt, Italian herb blend

Cooking steps:

  1. Turkey Meatballs: In a large pot, fill it up at least ½ way with water and place on the stove to boil. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

  2. Spray 2 large pans with non-stick cooking spray (I prefer olive oil non-stick spray)

  3. While the water is getting hot and the oven is preheating, start prepping pans. First I start with the meatballs since they take longer.

  4. In a large bowl, combine these ingredients:

  • ¼ chopped mushrooms

  • ¼ chopped onion

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

  • 1 cup marinara/tomato sauce

  • 1 Tsp. of: salt, black pepper and garlic powder

Combine all ingredients, thoroughly mixed. Using a spoon or 1 tbsp. Sized scoop, make evenly sized meatballs on the pan. Put in the oven and bake for 15-20 min. (baking times can vary upon oven)

  1. Kale Chips: On the sprayed sheet pan, spread out the kale evenly into 1 layer (if too much on top of each other, it may not cook evenly). Once you layer the kale, add:

  • Drizzle 1 Tbsb. Olive oil

  • ¼ cup chopped mushrooms (can also add peppers, onions, etc.)

  • ¼ tbsp. Of the following: salt, black pepper and garlic powder

With your hands or tongs, evenly mix the kale chips. Put in the oven and bake for 8-12 min. (baking times can vary upon oven and desired crispiness levels)

  1. Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Once the water is boiling, drop in the washed and cut potatoes (recommended: cut the potatoes into ⅓ or ¼ to cook faster). Once in boiling water, cook for 15-20 min, stirring occasionally. To check if they are done, pull out a potato piece and stick a fork in. If the fork goes in all the way and it easily breaks apart, it it most likely ready. Once ready, drain the potatoes in a strainer and add back to the original pot. In the pot with the potatoes combine and mash:

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 1-2 Tbsp. plain Greek yogurt

  • Seasonings: ½ tbsp. Black pepper, salt, garlic powder, Italian herb blend (recommended: ¼ Tbsp. ranch seasoning from Trader Joe’s)
