1.     In a food processor or blender, puree eggs first, then onion, celery, carrots, and spinach by repeatedly pulsing until the mixture is a fine-textured paste. Scrape the paste into a large bowl. (I puree half at a time.)

2.     Add the eggs, almond flour, garlic, salt, thyme, white pepper, sage, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.

3.     Add ground turkey and mix well.

4.     Preheat oven to 400oF.

5.     Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

6.     Roll the turkey mixture into golf ball-sized balls and place on the baking sheet in rows.

7.     Bake meatballs until brown all over, about 15-20 minutes. (17 minutes works for me.)

8.     (I generally bake three sheets of meatballs.)

9.     Use with tomato sauce or plain. Refrigerate or freeze. Eat hot or cold.
