Directions:
Meatballs:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line half sheet pan with parchment.
Mix ground turkey, qinoa, garlic, green onions, ginger and pepper. Roll into small meatballs about 1 1/2" dia - about 24. Place on baking sheet. Bake 18-20 minutes until browned and cooked through.

Meanwhile, make sauce. Add sauce ingredients in saucepan, bring to a boil and stir. Reduce heat to medium for 5 minutes until thick and coats the back of a spoon. If you need more thickness, mix some more cornstarch and pineapple juice until its dissolved, then add to sauce.

Coat the meatballs with the sauce, serve as is - or over rice, garnish with green onions, slivered almonds etc.

Note: I buy a six pack of the little pineapple juice cans and keep them on hand for recipes. They come in handy for this one.

I found this recipe on Slender Kitchen. I haven't used ground chicken, as I'm a big ground turkey fan. I've made it numerous times for me and for friends. Its great. Easy Peasy. Leftovers are great for lunch too.
