  • Instant Pot 6 qt
  • Sealing Rings
  • Mixing Bowls


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 ½ cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt fat free
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped

Optional, not included in the points count

  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper


  • Mix ground turkey, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and allspice in a medium-sized bowl. Use your hands to combine until just mixed. Then, form into 16 equal-sized meatballs. 1 lb ground turkey1 tsp paprika1 tsp onion powder1 tsp garlic powder½ tsp pepper1 tsp allspice
  • Set your Instant Pot to sauté and add a spray of olive oil. Brown your meatballs for about 30 seconds per side. Brown in small batches, only one layer at a time.
  • Add your broth to the hot pot and use a spatula or wooden spoon to scrape any pieces of turkey off the bottom of the pot. Add low-sodium soy sauce, and mustard. 1 ½ cup low sodium chicken broth1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce1 tbsp mustard
  • Close and lock the lid and place the pressure valve to sealing. Set your pot to Pressure Cook high for 5 minutes.
  • When the cooking time is complete, quickly release the pressure and remove the lid.
  • Scoop your meatballs out and set aside. Add Greek yogurt and parsley to the warm pot and mix well. If your gravy seems watery, add some cornstarch and mix well–it should thicken up. ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt1/4 cup fresh parsley

    Add the cooked meatballs back to the pot. Gently stir until the meatballs are evenly coated and serve warm. Optional, top with fresh Parmesan as desired. 2 tbsp parmesan cheese

Alternate meatball instructions:

  • Roll meatballs and freeze for 30 minutes. Skip step 2 of the directions and pressure cook for 7 minutes instead of 5.


  • A single serving of 4 meatballs and ½ cup of gravy is 0 Points on the 2023 Plan |  2 Blue Plan Points | 3 Green Plan Points 2 Purple Plan Points.
  • Don’t forget to count your optional toppings.


  • Don’t over-mix your turkey. Ground turkey tends to fall apart when it is over-handled.
  • I like spicy brown or Dijon mustard, but yellow mustard works well. They all have the same point value.
  • If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, swap the low-sodium soy sauce with a soy sauce alternative, like coconut aminos or Tamari.
  • You can use dried parsley in place of fresh, just add it to the pot with your broth, mustard, and soy sauce.
