This recipe for Sweet and Sour Meatballs (AIP/Paleo), whether served solo as an appetizer, or over your favorite version of riced vegetables, is one you’ll return to again and again!Jump to Recipe
You guys, these are just yummy. I don’t know how else to say it. I have eaten them over cauliflower rice, and was pleased to find that the sweet and sour sauce covers the “cuciferousness” (is that a word?) of said riced vegetable.
You don’t have to eat them as a main dish, however. I think they would be a fun thing to serve at a party! The recipe makes over 2 dozen meatballs, so slap these babies on the table in a cute bowl with some picks, and see if anybody notices that it’s an AIP/Paleo recipe. Keep it in mind for when you are trying to decide what to serve at the next Super Bowl party!
A note about ingredients
There is one ingredient here that you might find a little… well, weird. Yes, I really do mean baby food (carrots). Why? This ingredient not only adds color and nutrition, but it’s super easy to use. If it’s good enough for babies…
The brand of coconut aminos you use will make a difference in the color, taste and richness of this dish. I use this brand. (I’ve included the link here for convenience, but you might be able to find them at your favorite grocery store next to the soy sauce.)
If you are looking for a dish to serve with this, I suggest Coconut Cauli Rice Pilaf. It’s a good recipe for the uninitiated, a way to get comfortable with cauliflower as rice. I know, I know. It’s not the same as rice. If you have been on the AIP a long time, and are doing well with Stage 3 reintroductions, you could try white rice. You do you.
As always, I’m wishing you love and healing! Enjoy!
