Makes 4 servings (14 1-inch meatballs, 1 cup gravy, 4 cups mashed cauliflower)
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
½ pound ground turkey
½ pound ground sausage
2 tablespoons Land, Savory Garlic Seasoning by Spice Cave
½ teaspoon dried sage
½ teaspoon dried thyme
Coconut oil spray
Mashed Garlicky Cauliflower
2 12-ounce bags riced cauliflower
5 cloves garlic
2 teaspoon Grass-Fed Organic Ghee
5 tablespoons almond milk
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Bone Broth Gravy
2 tablespoons Grass-Fed Organic Ghee
1 ½ tablespoons arrowroot
½ tablespoon water
3/4 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
To make the meatballs: Preheat the oven to 400ºF. In a large bowl, add the turkey, sausage, egg, Land seasoning, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix well with your hands and form into 1-inch balls. Spray a sheet pan with coconut oil spray and place balls on pan at least 1 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip and continue cooking for another 12-15 minutes until fully cooked.
While the meatballs are baking, place the cauliflower and garlic in a steamer basket for 6-8 minutes until fully cooked through and soft. Drain most of the liquid off (don’t stress here—keeping a bit of liquid in will help create a smooth texture). Add the steamed cauliflower and garlic to the food processor along with the ghee, almond milk, salt and pepper. Process for 1-2 minutes until fully blended and smooth. Set aside and cover to keep warm.
To make the broth: In a small saucepan, heat the bone broth, ghee, salt and pepper over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer. Mix the arrowroot starch with the water and add to the simmering broth. Whisk continuously for 2-3 minutes until thickened.
To serve: Spoon the cauliflower mash into a bowl, top with a few turkey meatballs and drizzle the gravy over the top.
