Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and medium dice the sweet potato. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Peel and finely chop the ginger. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onion. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice, separating the stems and leaves. Grate the apple on the large side of a box grater, discarding the core. 

Cook the sweet potato:
2 Cook the sweet potato:

Add the diced sweet potato to the pot of boiling water. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly.

3 Form & cook the meatballs:

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the turkey, garlic paste, chopped ginger, and half the breadcrumbs (you will have extra). Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Shape the mixture into 10 tightly packed meatballs. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the meatballs in an even layer. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook, without stirring, 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned on all sides and cooked through.** Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

Cook, stirring frequently 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the curry paste. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add the soy sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), and 3/4 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly thickened.
