Yes and No Food Guide


Prep time: 20 min • Cook time: 25-30 min • Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili pepper
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • ¼ cup minced celery
  • ¼ cup minced carrot
  • ¼ cup minced walnuts

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line an 11-x 17-inch rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the beef, pepper, cayenne, and chili powder. Use your hands to mix well. 
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add the onions, celery, and carrots and cook until they’re translucent, about 4-minutes. Add the walnuts and sauté for an additional 2-minutes. 
  4. Set the onion mixture aside until it’s cooked enough to handle. Combine the cooled mixture with the meat and form it into 24 meatballs, roughly 1-inch in size. 
  5. Place meatballs on the lined baking pan and bake 25- to 30-minutes.  
  6. Serve warm with Moroccan Dipping Sauce if desired.
