giant meatballs attack!

I saw in Wholefoods the other day on Cambie these giant meatballs that they were serving at the hot food counter and I thought….that is totally IN for our slow carb diet plan.  I used to hate spaghetti squash, it was flavourless and just plain boring but since we’ve cut out pasta in our diet, it makes a wonderful substitute.  The mild flavour and the texture (if you don’t over cook it) is spot on without the guilt.  Plus it’s full of vitamins!

These meatballs are a little on the stiffer side as there are no breadcrumbs in the recipe but they are crazy tasty even though they’re not as tender as usual.

Make these meatballs and add your favourite pasta sauce and veggies in for a delicious low carb filling meal!

Here’s the recipe…

What you need!
2 lb ground beef
2 eggs
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 onion
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp oregano

What to do!

1.  Set the oven to 400 degrees.  Chop the onion into fine pieces.  Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix until incorporated.

2.  Loosely pack a handful of the mixture and place it into a greased oven proof dish.  Make sure to leave space between the meatballs.

3.  Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until browned and cooked through…enjoy!
