Lamb Meatballs with Mint Gremolata– Keto

Flavorful and tender, these lamb meatballs with mint gremolata are a fantastic way to brighten up your low carbohydrate meals in event of Spring! These amazing meatballs are not only low carb and keto, they are likewise dairy free, Paleo and even Entire 30 compliant!

I do not always eat lamb. When I do it’s in the Spring– when it’s on sale everywhere.

I wasn’t a substantial fan of lamb growing up, but I’ve come to appreciate it’s distinct flavor over time.

Since I like Middle Eastern tastes with lamb, I experienced this meatball mix with Za’atar that I was able to get here in Belize.

You can purchase Za’atar from excellent grocery stores and even World Market, online through sites like Amazon (here’s a great one,) or perhaps make your own Za’atar in your home.

It deserves making or buying some Za’atar, not just for this lamb meatballs with mint gremolata dish, however for all of your summertime grilling requirements– it adds great flavors to chicken and fish particularly!

I made this dish dairy free on function, since I understood that SO.

Now do not get me wrong, including feta or parmesan to these meatballs would be UH-MAZING, but believe it or not, they do not really require it.

I understand– I can’t believe I simply typed that sentence either …

But it holds true– these dairy free low carbohydrate meatballs get all of their taste from the lamb itself, the spices, which incredible herby gremolata.

Mentioning the gremolata– if you have actually never ever heard of it before it’s a simple, yet flavorful mince of fresh parsley, garlic and lemon enthusiasm that is kindly sprayed over stewed meats like Osso Bucco generally.

My variation adds a generous portion of fresh mint that pairs magnificently with the lamb and the Za’atar spices. I replaced lime passion, due to the fact that as I have actually gone on and on about previously, lemons are almost impossible to get here in Belize.

To my delight, the lime passion actually went excellent with the mint and spices in the lamb, producing an ideal harmony in the overall taste profile of this dish.

While I know this isn’t the kind of dish that all of you will find appealing, those of you that do branch off will enjoy it very much I’m sure!

I picked to serve it with spaghetti squash because it was a great break from the cauliflower mash that I typically delight in with keto meatballs– and it didn’t need dairy (or much of anything) to make it scrumptious. The garlicky gremolata and a splash of olive oil made spaghetti squash the ideal keto side dish to these lamb meatballs.

That being stated, you can match these with whatever vegetable you choose– or even serve them on skewers appetiser style if you like!
