Fab 4 Moroccan Meatballs

Fab 4 Moroccan Meatballs

Fab Four Moroccan Meatballs work as an appetizer, a protein-rich snack, or a crowd-pleasing main for a meal. This is a go-to dish I bring for potluck gatherings, too!

Meatballs are a staple in my home because they’re easy and versatile. All you need is a high quality ground protein. My favorites are from Butcher Box and Force of Nature (use code KELLY10). Add some ground flaxseed and seasonings from Thrive Market, and I’m meatball making ready!

Yes, you heard that right. The key ingredient in my meatballs is ground flax seed, or flax meal. I use it in place of breadcrumbs in order to increase the fiber content and create a uniform consistency. Just one serving of flax seeds provides extra protein, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids.

You can serve these Moroccan Meatballs with my favorite sugar-free condiments (use code KELLYSFAVORITES), Harissa sauce, or my homemade Zhoug sauce. For a complete Fab Four Moroccan meal, pair them with a side of roasted eggplant or my Mediterranean Salad.
