Crazy delicious meatballs created by an unintentional kitchen experiment. Sometimes what you don’t know makes something delicious! A great appetizer, or a delicious meal served as a wrap or over rice or orzo!
Serves: 4
  • ¾ lb. ground lamb
  • 1 TBS. ground turmeric
  • 1 TBS. sweet paprika
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 TBS. refined coconut oil
  • 2 TBS. tomato paste
  • generous squirt of Annie's Naturals Organic Ketchup
  • 2 TBS. Stonyfield French Vanilla Yogurt (or plain if you can’t handle it!)
  1. In a bowl mix together the ground meat (you could use any kind of ground meat you can find) and spices.
  2. Then heat up the coconut oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat.
  3. Roll meat mixture into small balls, I usually make mine about the size of a tablespoon and drop them into the skillet with the hot oil and brown in all sides.
  4. Once cooked, add the tomato paste, ketchup and yogurt stir to mix together and coat the meatballs in the sauce.
  5. Serve hot.
