Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup Sunflower Seed "Parmesan"
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Marinara Rustico

Directions

Preheat oven to 400° F. Lightly oil a baking dish.

Place ground beef in a large bowl. Add breadcrumbs, coconut milk, olive oil, parsley, garlic, Sunflower Seed “Parmesan,” salt and pepper. Using your hands, gently combine the mixture, being careful not to overmix. Form into 8 meatballs and place in the prepared baking dish.

Bake until the internal temperature measured with a thermometer reaches 155° F, 20 to 30 minutes. Serve with hot Marinara Rustico.

Special notes:

You can pan-fry the meatballs in a small amount of oil over medium heat. Lightly brown on all sides then transfer to a baking dish. Finish cooking in the oven until the internal temperature measured with a thermometer reaches 155° F, about 20 minutes.
