If you’ve been watching any of my snap stories (Sarah_Grace11) or videos on youtube (you can subscribe here!), you know I have been LOVING to make turkey meatballs every week as part of my food prep.

How can I not when I have found a gem of it only being 3.99/pound at trader joes?! #ASteal

Well every week I change it up a bit and try some new additions, but so far I’ve only shared with you my and my ones.

Last week I added some peanut flour and soy sauce to make a thai style meatball (I’ll be sharing those soon enough!)

Well, this week came around and I had some extra Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and spinach leftover in my refrigerator, and knew exactly what I was going to do.

And I bet you can guess too..

Oh and on top of that, I bought more apples after forgetting I had bought a huge bag the week before..

So yes, I combined my leftover spinach, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, and Apple to make these delicious, mediterranean flavored meatballs.

They were so moist, I didn’t even NEED any extra sauce for them after baking! But I did end up eating some with both the leftover hummus and on some spaghetti squash for a healthier spaghetti and meatballs..

But I also saved some for this past weekends tailgate for the football game here in Tallahassee, and boy were they a hit! My roommates loved them!

But I can’t help but to think how great these would be to serve with a hummus dip for a party as well!

Full of apples, spinach, hummus, HEALTH, and FLAVOR.

Did you know that just two tablespoons a day of hummus will fulfill your bean requirements for the day?! And guess what? This recipe uses 1/2 cup! #TwoSpoons for health and a nutrition-packed day!

SO YOU ARE SET.

And it reminds me of the song, “a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down!”  But that’s totally off topic..
