500 g Ground Turkey
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Red Onion
30 g Fresh Cilantro
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Cajun Seasoning
1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 Jar (200 g) of Roasted Red Peppers
80 g Roasted Cashews
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
15 g Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
4 Whole Wheat Pita Breads
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F). In a bowl, combine the ground turkey, minced garlic, finely chopped red onion, and half of the chopped cilantro.
Mix in the soy sauce, Cajun seasoning, and smoked paprika. Season with salt and pepper, then form the mixture into 16 meatballs.
Place the meatballs on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
For the sauce, drain the roasted red peppers and place them in a blender with the roasted cashews, blending until smooth. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
In a pan over medium heat, add the olive oil. Once hot, add the meatballs and cook for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until they're browned on all sides.
Glaze the meatballs by drizzling maple syrup and Dijon mustard over them, tossing to coat evenly.
Warm the pita breads in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
Serve the meatballs with the roasted pepper sauce, a sprinkle of sesame seeds, and the remaining cilantro. Enjoy with the warm pita breads.
