North African Harissa Turkey Meatballs by The Perfect Pantry

My love affair with turkey meatballs continues, as intense as ever, this time under the exotic influence of Morocco and Tunisia. Cumin, coriander, parsley, and harissa -- fundamental flavorings in North African cuisine -- turn a basic meatball recipe into something exciting like a love affair should be.

Even if you usually don't eat spicy food, please don't omit the harissa, a fiery hot pepper paste that includes chile peppers, coriander, cumin, caraway, and garlic; a small amount, balanced by the cooling Greek yogurt and bland flavor of the turkey, will feel just right. And if you're a hot food lover, go ahead and add a bit more spice to your life  -- I mean, add a bit more harissa to your meatballs!

 1 ¼ lbs ground turkey (I use 93% fat-free)

 ½ cup plain Greek yogurt(I use 0% fat)
 1 large egg
 1 tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp harissaor more to taste (I use 1-1/2 tsp)
