This is a great Meatball Recipe suitable, as always, for a gluten free diet and Paleo diet. Delicious and nutritious and great for picky kids as it's sneakily packed with lots of vegetables. This is a firm family favourite in our house. You could serve the meatballs dry, but we like to braise them in a rich and tasty meatball sauce.
Adding roughly chopped fresh basil to the sauce right before you serve it really makes this into something a bit special.
This ground beef recipe is a really easy (and sneaky) way of getting your kids to eat the vegetables they so often turn their noses up at. My son hates mushrooms with a vengeance, but he absolutely adores these meatballs which use finely chopped mushrooms to help them bind together. I've also found that if you throw in some defrosted frozen spinach cubes they have no idea!
You can make the vegetables chunkier if you're not trying to be sneaky, but if you are, you're going to need a food processor (we have a little hand operated multi purpose gadget that works great).
