*Makes 8 meatballs, for 2 servings


  • 1 pound 100% grass-finished ground beef (or protein of your choice)

  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup ground flax meal

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme

  • 1½ teaspoons pink Himalayan salt

  • 1½ teaspoons onion powder

  • 2 tablespoons of Be Savory seasoning

  • 1 (16-ounce) jar of Primal Kitchen’s Marinara* sauce or your favorite marinara

  • Grated goat’s- or sheep’s-milk Parmesan cheese or yogurt, for serving (optional)

  • Zucchini or squash zoodles


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. In a large bowl, use your hands (or a wooden spoon) to combine the beef, egg, flax meal, garlic, oregano, thyme, salt, onion powder, and 1 tablespoon of the Be Savory seasoning. The mixture should be smooth, but don’t over mix.

  3. Form the mixture into meatballs about 1 inch in diameter and place them on an ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

  4. Transfer the meatballs to a decorative oven-safe baking dish. Pour the marinara over the meatballs to cover. Bake for 5 minutes to heat and thicken the sauce.

  5. Sprinkle Parmesan over the meatballs and garnish with the remaining Be Savory seasoning. Serve warm, with a side of zoodles.
