Low Carb. Gluten Free. Delicious

A low carb meatball with all of the flavors and textures of the classic Chinese takeout favorite!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey or chicken
  • 2 Tbl minced ginger
  • ¼ cup scallions, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • light flavored oil for frying (olive, grapeseed, etc)
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 3 Tbl rice wine vinegar (unseasoned - sugar free)
  • 3 Tbl soy sauce (tamari based for GF, or coconut aminos for Paleo)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 Tbl sugar substitute (honey for Paleo)
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum (or arrowroot powder)
  • ¼ cup scallions, chopped
  • 4 - 5 small dried chilies, seeded and chopped

Directions

  • Combine all of the meatball ingredients and mix thoroughly. Form into 16 balls and saute/fry in oil over medium heat until cooked through and crispy. Alternatively you could bake them but they wont get the crunchy exterior.
  • Combine the sesame oil, vinegar, GF soy sauce, water, sugar substitute, and xanthan gum in a small saucepan and whisk until combined. Add the scallions and chili pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer for five minutes until thickened and remove from heat.
  • Add the cooked meatballs to the thickened sauce and stir to coat. Garnish with more chopped scallions and chilis if desired.
