Gluten Free Parmesan Meatballs

Parmesan Meatballs 01

I haven’t been around on Colourful Palate much lately…and I miss it. Right now I’m trying to learn how to balance everything with college, freelancing, family, and social life. I guess my blog is the first thing to go!

However, I’m going to try to get myself together so I can be posting more regularly again…i.e. better TIME management. We’ll see how this goes…

Anyway, I wanted to share my favourite meatball recipe. Most meatballs have fillers that use gluten, so I made up a recipe that is absolutely decadent WITHOUT gluten. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I’m going to say my recipe results in my favourite meatballs. I think it’s the Parmesan cheese that makes this recipe so delectable.

I like serving these with a tomato sauce and pasta, but in a recipe (coming soon!) I actually serve them in a soup and it’s ahmaaazing. Get creative you can have these with really anything – maybe topping a salad for protein or even a meatball sandwich. Serves 4.

Gluten Free Parmesan Meatballs

  1. 12 ounce organic, lean beef
  2. 1 organic egg
  3. 1 rice cake, ground
  4. 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  5. Oregano, basil, onion powder, pepper, and salt

If you’re looking for detailed instructions…there aren’t any. Mix it all up (use just a little bit of each spice – think 1/2 tsp), form into small balls, and fry them up on medium heat. Just make sure that the middle is thoroughly cooked before you serve them. Yum. Yum.

    How creative to add a rice cake in there. I’m going to have to try that next time! These look awesome.

    I never thought to use a rice cake! I’ve used ground flax and that works pretty well. Smart idea!

    […] Everyone used real eggs in their recipes. I recently bought some “powdered egg substitute” and used that instead. I used this recipe as my main guide. […]
