Whether you are entertaining for a crowd or cooking for yourself, these meatballs are sure to please. I love how versatile they can be — you can skip the beef and sub for ground lamb or even ground turkey with the same  tasty results. These meatballs are delicious on their own as a fun party appetizer, but they also pair well with your favorite pasta or spiralized veggie. The quinoa is completely optional – combined with the coconut flour, it makes a great substitute for traditional breadcrumbs.

(recipe name)
18-20 meatballs
Prep Time
12 minutes
Cook Time
42 mintues

For Serving (optional):

  • Freshly chopped parsley and fresh oregano
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Lightly drizzle a large baking pan enameled cast iron pan with olive oil.
  2. Add all ingredients except for the tomato sauce to a large bowl. Using your hands, mix well to combine. Form the meat mixture into ¼ cup sized meatballs.
  3. Place meatballs in prepared baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. Top meatballs with tomato sauce and continue baking for 10-15 more minutes until meatballs are cooked through and tomato sauce has thickened slightly. Garnish with fresh herbs and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
  4. *To cook quinoa: Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a fine strainer. Combine 1 cup of water (or Brandless vegetable broth for extra flavor) and ½ cup Brandless quinoa in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes until water is absorbed and quinoa is fluffy and tender. Makes about 1½ cups.
