Packed Lunch: Turkey Meatballs & Khorasan Salad

Updated: Dec 4, 2019

This lunch took a little experimenting to get just right, but now it is a staple in our house. Flavours lean towards the sweet end with the meatball sauce and the fruits in the khorasan salad. But the meatballs also provide a spicy kick, and the salad a refreshing tartness with the pomegranate seeds. We also liked the way cumber refreshes our palate as we eat.



Notes:


Healthy: This lunch is intentionally a healthy option that also manages to be very tasty. It includes a whole grain, which doesn't spike your blood sugar and will keeps us feeling full. The meatballs are made using a lean ground turkey-breast, which is lower in calories, but also protein rich. Grapes and cucumbers have lots of healthy fiber while also being hydrating. This lunch has it all: fruits, grains, vegetables and meat!


Items:

4 turkey meatballs. If you want to control your calories, don't layer on the sauce, just give them a quick toss in the sauce and put them in your container.

• 1 cup khorasan salad

• 1 cup grapes

• 125 g cucumber slices


Calories: We use this lunch as a way to control how many calories we eat up in a day. If you pack this lunch as we describe, it will be about 500 calories.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.
 

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
