Gluten Free Chia Meatballs - Super Moist!

These meatballs will satisfy both gluten free eaters as well as those without any sensitivity.  They are a great way to sneak veggies into your kids diet too!  The secret ingredient used to keep these meatballs super moist is...cauliflower!!  You will be amazed with how tender and moist these are - and no one will guess they are made with a vegetable!

You'll Need:
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup finely grated cauliflower (I used leftover cauliflower rice)
  • 1/4 cup grated parm cheese
  • 5 tsp chia seed
  • 1 egg (omit if you like, the chia will act as a binder)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • salt & pepper 
Mix all ingredients together until completely incorporated.  Heat a skillet on medium heat and drizzle with olive oil.  Make meatballs according to the size you prefer and brown them in the skillet.  Serve with your favorite marinara and spaghetti squash!!
