Hoisin Glazed Turkey Meatballs

That's it. 
It was so easy & quick.
I threw them in the oven as I was doing some work from home & before I knew it...they were done.  They were really moist (I even used 96% lean ground turkey) & had really good flavor.  Bonus: I ate them for lunch all week too.

Makes: 26 Meatballs. Active Time: 20 minutes. Total Time: 30 minutes.
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger root, preferably grated with a rasp-style grater

1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 scallions, minced plus sliced scallion greens for garnish, divided
1/2 cup finely drained, chopped water chestnuts
1 pound lean ground turkey
1/4 cup purchased Hoisin Sauce 
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice black and/or white sesame seeds, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, crushed red pepper and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in cornstarch until smooth. Stir in 2 minced scallions and water chestnuts. Stir in turkey until completely combined.
