  • 1 celery
  • 1/4 heads broccoli
  • 3 tablespoons chinese parsley


Peel the celery and the carrot. Chop the onion, carrot and celery in very small cubes.
Clean the head of broccoli and cut it to obtain saplings. Cook the broccoli and carrot in boiling salted water. Drain the water and place the vegetable in a bowl with cold water and ice so it does not overcook.
Fry the rest of the vegetable with a little oil until it is soft. Add the cooked vegetables, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, Parmesan cheese and cornstarch to ground turkey breast. Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Form small balls with the help of two spoons or using an ice cream scoop. In this way all the meatballs will have the same size.
For the sauce: Cook the tomatoes and onion in boiling water for 3 minutes. Pass the tomato and onion to a blender glass, add the garlic clove. Blend until all the ingredients are integrated.
Add a little oil to a hot pan and strain the sauce into the pan. Add water and season to taste.
Place the meatballs in the sauce and let cook for 30 minutes, you can cover the pan to give them an even cooking or go turning the meatballs to cook evenly.
Serve the meatballs on a plate and dip with the sauce.


Accompany with a little parsley or if you prefer you can sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top.


You can substitute turkey breast for clean, fat-free chicken breast.
