  • Step 1

    Make the Rice: Heat a saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the shallot and garlic and cook, stirring, until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the lemon zest, rice, salt and turmeric and continue to cook, toasting the rice until fragrant and lightly browned, about 4 more minutes. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir and reduce the heat to a light simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and keep covered for 10 more minutes to allow it to continue to steam.
  • Step 2

    Make the Meatballs: Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, coriander, cumin, allspice, paprika, sesame seeds, tahini, dill, and parsley. Mix until well combined. Roll into 1-inch meatballs and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake until cooked through and golden brown on the top, 15 to 18 minutes.
  • Step 3

    Make the Tahini Drizzle: To make the tahini drizzle simply combine the tahini and lemon juice in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp of warm water at a time and whisk until it reaches your desired consistency.
