Mediterranean Meatballs

I am always looking for new meatball recipes because they are easy to make ahead, kids love them, and they are great for a crowd.  Here is another recipe I tried that was family approved.

Mediterranean Meatballs modified from American GrassFed Beef

2 lbs             grassfed ground beef or ground turkey

1/2 C             finely chopped black olives

1/3 c             finely chopped onions

1 t                 garlic

1/2 c              finely chopped fresh parsley

1                      organic egg

1/3 C              sprouted bread crumbs (just lightly toast sprouted bread and process into crumbs) or cooked quinoa

1/2 t              sea salt

1/2 t             freshly ground black pepper

2 T              grape seed oil

1 can           organic tomato sauce (Check label – NO SUGAR)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Form 1 1/2 – 2″ meatballs. Brown in grape seed oil over medium heat. Place meatballs in covered baking dish. Pour prepared tomato sauce over meatballs. Bake in 350 degree oven 20 minutes. Serve over wilted spinach.
