Paleo Italian Meatballs

[PCOS Food Friday] Paleo Italian Meatballs

Welcome to Food Friday! This week’s PCOS Friendly recipe is: Paleo Italian Meatballs

Why we love this dish:

  • Turkey and grass fed beef are excellent sources of complete protein.
  • Tomatoes contain a high amount of lycopene, a potent antioxidant that aides in reducing cancer-causing free radicals.
  • Fresh basil is a powerful herb. It contains antioxidants, acts as an anti-inflammatory and contains antimicrobial properties to help fight viruses and infections.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground grass fed beef
  • 1 lb. ground organic turkey
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic-minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup found almond meal (any ground nut will work as well)
  • 2 jars no sugar added pasta sauce
  • zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash noodles

Steps:

  1. In a skillet over medium heat warm olive oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until fragrant. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine, ground beef and turkey, egg, almond meal, basil, salt and pepper and onion mixture (once cooled).
  3. Using hands mix to combine. Roll mixture into 32-1 oz meatballs or 16-2 oz meatballs.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place meatballs evenly spaced on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 Minutes.
  5. In a large pot add sauce and begin to simmer over low heat. Add meatballs to sauce and continue cooking an additional 20 minutes. Slow cooker option – you can place sauce and meatballs (after baking) into a slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.
