Pork Meatballs Over Mashed Cauliflower

Pork Meatballs Over Mashed Cauliflower

Since going AIP, cauliflower has been my new best friend. This cruciferous vegetable is packed with anti-inflammatory properties, loaded with Vitamin C + K, and has even been shown to balance hormones.

Isn’t the word “anti-inflammatory” just so romantic? …Yea, I’ve officially lost it.

Anyway, back to this recipe. These pork meatballs are so yummy, easy to make in a big batch, and so delicious and comforting paired with the mashed cauliflower.

Meatball Ingredients:

1 lb ground pork

2 tbsp spices

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 clove fresh garlic, minced

1 small onion, chopped

Mashed Cauliflower ingredients:

2 heads cauliflower

4 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp onion powder

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine the pork, spices, vinegar, garlic, and onion – mix with hands in a large bowl.
  3. Form mixture into golf ball sized meatballs and place on lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. While the meatballs bake, roughly chop the cauliflower and steam until fork tender.
  6. Add steamed cauliflower, coconut oil, garlic and onion powders to a blender (or leave in pot and use an immersion blender).
  7. Blend cauliflower until a smooth mashed-potato-like consistency forms.
  8. Serve meatballs over mashed cauliflower and enjoy!
