Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped 

  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped 

  • 8 fresh sage leaves 

  • 8 large fresh basil leaves

  • Leaves from 4 sprigs of thyme

  • Leaves from a 5-inch sprig of rosemary 

  • ¼ up Italian parsley

  • 1 large handful of coriander, roughly chopped 

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 cup tomato sauce

  • 3 table spoons extra virgin olive oil

Method

Combine the onion, garlic, herbs and coriander in the bowl of a food processor and pulse it until very finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl along with the turkey, salt and pepper. Use your hands to thoroughly combine all the ingredients, then roll the mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs.

Place the tomato sauce in a large pot set over low heat and let it get warm.

While the sauce is warming, heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs in batches is necessary until they are browned all over 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the browned meatballs to the simmering tomato sauce and partially cover the pot. Let the meatballs cook gently for ½ hour, carefully stirring every now and then to make sure they’re cooking evenly. Serve hot with your favourite gluten-free pasta, a pot of polenta or even on their own alongside some broccoli rabe.
