Seasoned lamb meatballs over cilantro & lime cauliflower rice, sautéed market mushrooms and greens 🌱😻 These meatballs were so flavorful 🙊 . Mix 1 lb grass fed ground lamb with 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 cup chopped parsley, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp ground pepper, 3 tbsp toasted pine nuts (heat in a pan over the stove for several minutes— watch closely!). Form into meatballs and brown in a large pan with avocado oil, flipping every 3-5 min until done. For the cilantro lime cauli rice, sauté minced garlic & diced onion in olive/avocado oil (optional, as I opted out of the two), then add 1 bag of riced cauliflower (or regular rice) to pan. Stir constantly on medium heat and add 1/2 squeezed lime, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, red chili flakes, s + p 💃 Cook mushrooms in ghee and you’re ready to go 🙋✨
