With three kinds of veggies and the texture and flavor your kids expect, this Healthy Meatball recipe is a perfect family dinner option.
– Carrots, parsley, and onion – Ground beef – Bread crumbs – Egg – Milk – Grated Parmesan – Salt
Place the carrots, parsley, and onion into a food processor. Grind well, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Coat with nonstick spray. Add the remaining ingredients and grind to combine into a smooth mixture.
Portion into 2-tablespoon-size meatballs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve with warm marinara sauce and pasta (or ketchup and other simple sides!) as desired. Or simmer them in marinara sauce for even more tender and flavorful meatballs.
Resist the urge to add in more veggies. There is over a cup of veggies in this recipe, which is enough to add extra nutrients, yet you honestly can’t tell.
Even though there are vegetables tucked into this recipe, I still recommend being honest with your kids about what they’re eating.
To store, let cool fully and store in an airtight container in the fridge or up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
