Turkish Meatballs

1 lb ground beef or lamb *local grass fed if possible
2 T ground flax seed, ground *a coffee grinder works great to grind flax seeds
1 carrot, grated
1 small onion, chopped 
1 celery stalk, chopped celery
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp dried mint
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Roll into bite size balls and place a baking sheet with sides. Or use my favorite method...a mini muffin pan and just plop the meat mixture into the muffin tin.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes....whenever they are done.

Serve with traditional Turkish Cacik
