  • 200 grams of turkey mince 
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 tbsp salsa picada (optional)
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts (optional)


  • Set oven to 375F
  • Measure out your portion of lean turkey mince. Season with 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tbsp cumin and 1/2 tbsp garlic powder. Mix in the seasoning with your hands.
  • Make individual meatballs. Suggest four 50 gram meatballs.
  • Set the cast iron skillet on the stove stop and place it on medium high heat. Add the coconut oil and the minced garlic.
  • Cook the garlic until it becomes brown and then add in the meatballs. Roll the meatballs around the skillet until they are brown on at least 2 sides which should take about 3-5 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low. Add 3 cups of raw spinach to the skillet.
  • Cover the skillet with foil (or glass lid but foil is preferred) and cook for another 3 minutes on the stove top. 
  • Place the entire skillet with the foil on top in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes - careful not to overcook the turkey.
  • Remove from the oven and the spinach will be wilted and ready to eat.
  • Add salsa and pine nuts.
