Turkey Meatballs with Roasted Peppers

turkey-meatballs-with-roasted-peppers 

I made this weekend a menu for the week and for today we had meatballs. I did not buy anything because I had the meat in the freezer and the roasted peppers.

I want to clean a little bit my freezer, to freeze new things and to cook what I already have. For me is easy to cook all week when I have a plan, and a menu when I already know on Monday what I’ll cook all week.

Try it sometimes, you’ll be surprised how it changes your diet and also, you will buy fewer things because you will buy  only what you’ll need for the menu of the whole week.

This is a simple dish that we like and I made 3-4 times until now.

Ingredients:

  • 500 g of minced turkey meat 
  • 800 g of roasted pepper
  • 50 g of peas
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • dill
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 2 cloves of garlic

Prepare everything. Soften the bread in a little bit of milk, slice the carrots and the celery, chop the onion and cut the peppers into bite size pieces.
