The Tastiest Keto, Paleo And Low Carb Greek Meatballs

Keto Paleo Greek Meatballs By The Nourished Caveman

Do you like Greek Food?

Do you want to know a funny thing? I never liked Greek food.

I mean I used to REALLY not like it. Never ate in Greek restaurants, never went to Greece, even though I love my mediterranean sea and Italy is just a stone’s throw away.

But then things changed….it started with this Tzatziki obsession, and after making Paleo Tzatziki for 2 months I finally decided to make the recipe for the blog.

Then, as I have been quite obsessed with meatballs as well, I got the brilliant idea to try a Greek meatball recipe to go with my awesome Tzatziki! I researched all kinds of traditional Greek recipes, because I like to stay as authentic as I can, and then transformed the traditional Keftedes into these fantastic low carb clones!

It is a perfect recipe for Summer, when cucumbers, mint and parsley should grow in your garden or can be easily found at your local farmers market.

This are the tastiest Low Carb Greek Meatballs I have ever tried!

Full with flavors but not with carbs!

These low carb greek meatballs are a great dish to make in big batches and they will keep in the fridge for up to a week. They are delicious both warm and cold!
Ingredients
  • 3 organic pastured eggs
  • ⅓ cup (15 grams) of finely chopped chives
  • ⅓ cup (15 grams) of finely chopped parsley leaf, I used the curly variety
  • 1 Tbs (5 grams) finely chopped garlic
  • ½ cup of coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk like this!)
  • ½ Tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1 Tbs Psyllium fiber (I like this one)
  • 1 Lb organic ground beef
  • ⅔ cup coconut flour for dredging the meatballs
  • ½ cup coconut oil to fry
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl whisk the eggs with a fork until blended and foamy.
  2. In the same bowl combine the herbs, the garlic, the coconut cream and the salt and mix well.
  3. Now add the psyllium fiber and the meat broken into chunks, and combine by hand combine by hand until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat.
  5. Roll the meatball mix into golf sized balls and then flatten slightly.
  6. Dredge the meatballs evenly into the coconut flour, covering them on all sides.
  7. This mix should make approximatively 30 meatballs.
  8. Test the heat of the oil with a small piece of meatball mix, it should bubble and sizzle when placed in the skilled.
  9. Fry the meatballs about 3 minutes on each side, or until well browned.
  10. You can cook them in several batches, making sure the oil does not get too cold or too hot, by looking at the color of the cooked meatballs: they should brown and crispy on the outside and very tender and juicy on the inside.
  11. If they are dry you are cooking them too long!
  12. Drain on a piece of paper before serving.
Notes
This recipe makes about 25 golfball sized meatballs

    Why you use coconut cream?
