  • for the meatballs
  • 500 g ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. fennel seed
  • salt and pepper
  • for the sauce
  • 1 small onion diced
  • a garlic clove minced
  • 1 can cherry- or other tomatoes 400g
  • 1/2 tsp. fennel seeds
  • ~50ml water
  • 2 tbsp. balsamico vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp.sugar
  • for the zoodles
  • 1 medium zucchini per person around 40-50 calories extra


  • add the fennel seeds to the meat and mix with your hands, add salt and pepper to taste and form small balls. (I had 22 balls)
  • heat some oil in a big pan and fry the balls from all sides until brown. They don´t have to be cooked through already, because they will cook further in the sauce. Take out of the pan and set aside.
  • Fry the onion and the garlic in the same pan until golden brown. Deglaze with the tomatoes and the water and stir.
  • Add the balsamico and the sugar and simmer on low to medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir eventually.
  • Now add the meatballs back into the pan and let cook with the lid on another 10 minutes on low heat.
  • Serve with the zoodles or real pasta or bread.
