Do you love onion? Garlic? Basically keep any and everyone away from you for a couple hours? (kidding about that last part)
If you're like me, you know that adding tons of flavor to food can make it so much more enjoyable and fun when eating clean. These meatballs and sauce served over sweet potatoes don't disappoint for an easy Whole30 dinner.
I gather a TON of inspiration for my sauces from Melissa Joulwan. She has some great Whole30 sauces using nutbutters and nut milks like the one I'm making below. This one is a very loose adaptation of one of hers that I love, here.
Also, let's talk about roasted grapes. They're a serious game changer. The perfect hint of sweet in a savory dish, plus it just sounds super foodie and fancy — your guests will totally be impressed. Shoutout to my friends at RealSimpleGood for introducing me to them!
1 lb ground beef
3 green onions (chopped or put in the food processor)
4 Tbsp coconut flour
1 pinch garlic powder
1/4 Cup tahini
1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp nut milk of choice
1-2 Tbsp Coconut aminos
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 425. Combine ground beef, chopped green onion, 2 egg, 4 Tbsp coconut flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, a pinch of garlic powder and mix well.
Form meatballs to whatever size your prefer. I like keeping them small, about a tablespoon. Mine made 27.
Bake at 425 for about 35 minutes on a greased baking sheet. Add grapes to a greased baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare veggies (I love doing sweet potato noodles.) I like to sauté mine in some ghee before topping with meatballs and sauce.
When timer is finished, check that meatballs are done and set aside to slightly cool.
Add to a food processor the 1/4 cup of tahini, then add 6 Tbsp of nut milk, a pinch of salt, and 2 Tbsp coconut aminos. Blend until creamy, add more milk as needed to get desired sauce consistency. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
Top noodles with meatballs, grapes, and sauce. Enjoy!
