Garbonzo Bean Meatballs

While watching Biggest Loser the other day, they were talking about making meatballs with ground turkey and mashed garbanzo beans (or chickpeas, same thing) and I was intrigued so I made some. The one thing I wasn't expecting was for the kids to like them, but my very picky eater gobbled down two of them, and Ella liked it too. That's always a nice surprise. ☺

Garbanzo Bean Meatballs

1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
1 can (15oz) garbanzo beans, drained and mashed
Garlic cloves (I used about 3, but I like garlic!)
Onion powder
pinch of red pepper, ground or flakes
Soy sauce, splash
2 eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs, or instant oats (you may need more if it's looking too runny)

Mix and bake @ 400 for 30 minutes, or until cooked all the way through. (It will depend on the size of your meatballs too) ☺
So, not only is it more healthful, it could be a good way to make your meat go farther as well!
