  1. Ok, these were the bomb diggatay! And easy too. So, here’s the original recipe as well as my modifications…enjoy!!

    Original recipe: http://www.elanaspantry.com/spunky-coconuts-chicken-meatballs/

    1 cup zucchini, chopped (about 1 zucchini) – i didn’t have any, so used baby chard
    1 cup carrots, chopped (about 2 carrots)
    ½ cup parsley, coarsely chopped – used one cup, love fresh parsley
    3 medium cloves garlic – used 4+
    ¼ cup blanched almond flour
    1 egg
    1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts – this is what saved me time – bought ground chicken-apple sausage from trader joe’s – gluten free, organic, no crap. You can probably find a version of it at Haggen’s, Co Op
    1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
    ½ teaspoon ground pepper
    ¼ teaspoon chili powder – skipped this the first time
    added green onions, shallots

    Preheat oven to 350°
    In a food processor, pulse together the zucchini, carrots, parsley and garlic
    Add almond flour, egg, and chicken (since I used pre ground chicken, used my mini food processor, ground up everything, then used my hands to mix sausage, egg, flour, spices with the other stuff….easy.
    Then add salt, pepper and chili powder and process until thoroughly combined
    Drop tablespoon sized balls of the chicken mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet
    Bake meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes – checked at 25, were perfect.
    Serve

    These were GREAT, per my official taste testers – Fuzz, Nick and Kels. 🙂 Next time, I plan on using ground pork, adding thyme, shrooms, celery, more shallot and more pepper.

    I also plan on doubling the recipe to freeze some after I’ve cooked – easy snacks or add them to your marinara for a quick din din on a week night. Enjoy!

  2. Neilio – you can always ramble here. That sounds FABULOUS! So, share exactly what you did. Everyone would love to hear! And when I say everyone, I mean all three of us!
