Italian Beef Meatballs

Meatballs are a crowd pleaser. These take 10 minutes to assemble and require minimal attention while cooking. We often have a batch of these in the freezer, ready to reheat.

They’re low FODMAP and gluten free and are best enjoyed with rice, gluten free pasta or my personal favourite – the zucchini noodle!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Meatballs are a great way to “sneak” veggies into your food! Here the spinach and parsley add fiber, antioxidants, iron and flavor without being noticed! Additionally, so many people mindlessly toss breadcrumbs or white bread into their meatballs but this recipe shows you that isn’t needed. I would recommend using local, grass-fed beef when possible to increase the omega 3 fatty acids and if you are avoiding red meat sub in organic turkey or chicken for just as much flavor!
