How to make zucchini meatballs without frying them

Sometimes we just cannot take it anymore the regular diet with it’s chicken/turkey,  salads and veggies and we need to freshen-up our everyday dish. My way to make the boring turkey/chicken to taste different is to make a meatballs. Which is fast, easy and delicious. as every time I am experimenting with different proportions and extras than I do not really follow a certain recipe, so just mixing up ingredients and go by intuition. 

So here come my yesterday’s meatball recipe. Remember this is a fit blog and a fit version of a meatballs so no frying required, just oven -to keep it light.

As I like to experiment that last preparation tried to add some additional seeds ( linen flax seeds and pumpkin seeds as well as red onion for color).

They are ready to go in the oven

Unfortunately as I was so hungry ( making them after gym and was completely starving after a long work day and gym sess’ ) than couldn’t wait to get them in my belly, so there is no post-oven pictures. but trust me – they become just golden brown. Use your imagination and try yourself!
