  • 1 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 heaping handful baby kale chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine all of the meatball ingredients using your hands. Form 2 inch meatballs, and line them up on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the meatballs in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. While the meatballs are baking, you can make the gravy.

  • Add the garlic and green onions and cook for a couple minutes.
  • Deglaze the pan with the red wine, and then add the bone broth, sprinkle in the rice flour, and bring to a low simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Season the gravy with salt and pepper to your taste and add the cooked meatballs. Serve with veggie sides.
