The CrossFit Kitchen: Thai Turkey Meatballs

In this video, Nick Massie of PaleoNick.com takes a brief respite from wall-ball shots to share his recipe for Thai turkey meatballs.

These meatballs contain ginger, cilantro and coconut milk—traditional Thai ingredients—but Massie uses cauliflower as a substitute for rice, offering a healthier option for CrossFit athletes.

After combining the turkey, vegetables and spices, he shapes the meatballs and browns them in a skillet, turning them occasionally to get good coloring and caramelization on every side.

The cauliflower is shredded in a food processor until it has a risotto-like texture. It serves as the base for the “fried rice” in the dish.

“Beautiful,” Massie says as he adds the finishing touches. “The flavor is bound to bring you to your knees.”
