Ground meat can sometime turn out dry and mealy so my main goal with these meatballs was to make sure they were flavorful and juicy. The full pound of spinach ensures that this meatball recipe was going to be juicy! The combination of herbs and spices make it super flavorful as well. These Turkey and Spinach Meatballs taste great alone or with my Nomato Sauce.

This recipe makes about two dozen meatballs. That may seem like a lot but we always eat the leftovers. These meatballs don’t last more than 48 hours in our house. Even my toddler loves them and eats them like apples.

If you don’t have two adults and one very hungry toddler, I totally get it. You can easily freeze any extras. We love this recipe so much that I’m thinking about freezing a big batch so that we have something ready to go in the freezer when you’re not in the mood to cook. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Spinach Stew

This less than 10 ingredient Spinach Stew is slow cooked to perfection. The spinach, onion and spices are cooked down so that the flavors intensify and create a really delicious side dish. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol, paleo and vegan diets.

I realize that this Spinach Stew recipe takes a whopping 60 minutes to make but I assure you it’s worth the wait. Don’t even think about trying to shave time off of this dish because it just won’t be the same. This Spinach Stew side dish only uses 6 ingredients and slow cooks them to perfection. It’s the closest thing to an allergy friendly, AIP and Paleo creamed spinach recipe you’ll ever find.

Spinach is a great veggie and packed full of healthy stuff. I try to eat it as often as possible, because it’s important to pack on the nutrient dense foods when you are on a restricted diet. However, there are only so many times I can have sautéed spinach or a spinach salad.

When you can’t have dairy, soy or any nut milk (including coconut) it’s nice to taste something so smooth, creamy and flavorful. This recipe works because it slowly condenses the tasty onion, spinach, spices and broth. The slow cooking intensifies the flavors and makes me so freaking happy.

Recipe type: Dinner, Starter
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 2 medium Onions, roughly chopped
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth, divided
  • 16 ounces Frozen Chopped Spinach, chopped
  • Salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Puree the onion and garlic in a food processor.
  2. Add the onion mixture to a large pot on the stovetop over medium heat.
  3. Cover the pot with the lid, for about 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add olive oil, turmeric, cloves and 1 cup of broth to the pot and then stir to combine.
  5. Continue to cook, uncovered while stirring occasionally, for about 12-14 minutes or until onions are golden brown and the liquid has reduced. Be careful to watch it towards the end as you don’t want it to burn.
  6. Add the frozen spinach to the pot and stir to combine.
  7. Cook for another 25 minutes, adding the remaining broth as necessary, to keep the mixture creamy. Keep the spinach just covered with broth, and then let the liquid cook off for the last 10 minutes.
