Turkey meatballs

Writing this all the way from the current 3rd place holder of Lonely Planet’s, ‘Cities to Visit’ . The beautiful capital of Lithuania, Vilnius. Not enough is written about this great city. Besides being the home of my boy , it is absolutely beautiful and interesting. Every time I visit, I feel so welcomed and comfortable that overstaying is not an issue. So many interesting eats that I should probably document it all and post it. Today I found turkey at the supermarket which is uncommon in Singapore so I decided to make some meatballs. Turkey is a great source of protein and leaner and healthier meat choice.

INGREDIENTS

500g ground turkey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 white onion ( minced )
6 cloves garlic ( minced )
1 egg
Black pepper
