paleo meatballs and sweet potato chips

paleo meatballs and sweet potato chips

Paleo Meatballs...

There ain't no such thing as too many meatballs...

250g mince
1tsp salt
1/3 cup almond meal
3 cups baby spinach
1tsp dijon mustard (optional)
25g tomato paste
2tbs sage
1 sweet potato, medium
Olive oil


Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180o Celsius/350o Fahrenheit.

Place spinach in a bowl and cover with boiling water,leave for 2 minutes before draining as much liquid as possible from the spinach. Chop well.

Place spinach in a bowl along with mince, salt, almond meal, mustard, tomato paste and sage. Combine well.

Roll into 2.5cm size balls and place on an oven proof baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until browned
and cooked through.

Meanwhile, heat enough oil in a frying pan for deep frying. Peel sweet potato then slice into ribbons using a vegetable peeler.

Place a small handful of sweet potato ribbons in frying pan and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly browned.

Remove from frying pan and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Repeat with remaining sweet potato.
To serve, place sweet sweet potato ribbons on a plate and top with meatballs.
