SPINACH CILANTRO MEATBALLS

I am always on the lookout for healthy, easy and practical recipes for my family. This meatball recipe is ideal because it is easy to make, delicious and can be frozen for future use! The meatballs are perfect for school lunches, summer picnics, dinner…you name it.

Ingredients:

2 pounds ground meat (grass-fed beef, organic chicken, organic dark meat turkey, bison)

1/2 of a Vidalia onion, finely chopped

1 tsp ground Celtic sea salt

1 small garlic clove, finely chopped

1 tsp cumin powder

2 cups organic baby spinach, chopped

1/2 cup fresh organic cilantro,  finely chopped

2 eggs (beaten)

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Roll the mixture into medium-sized balls and place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, until cooked all the way through and meatballs are beginning to brown.

Serves: about 30 medium meatballs

Tip: The meatballs can be frozen in an airtight container for future meals. Just re-heat them in the oven and they are ready to be enjoyed!

 

Blessings,

Jenice
