Recipe: Gluten Free Italian Meatballs

Gluten Free Italian Meatballs: 3ten.ca

I love to cook and this year for Christmas my dad got me this amazing pan! It’s the 12 inch skillet that matches the rest of our Pampered Chef set. When he got it for me he joked that Gordon Ramsay was going to deliver it and cook three meals – well, here’s the first Gordon inspired meal. Oh, and I’ve two more on the way this week. Dad, he delivered! xo

This recipe is modified from his classic Italian meatball since one, I’m a Celiac and two, I don’t eat pork or beef. So, modify as you wish, too. The original recipe was found on Food. Here we go!

Ingredients

  • 400g of ground turkey
  • 1/2 a bunch of flat leaf parsley
  • splash of vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons of rice breadcrumbs
  • milk to cover breadcrumbs
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 14 oz can of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 shallots finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 a red chili finely chipped
  • 1 small bunch of basil
  • 1 tab of oregano
  • 2 tablespoons of gluten free flour
  • grape seed oil

First – the pan. It’s awesome, eh?

Next – gather your ingredients and set the oven to 350 degrees. This pan can handle the oven up to 400 degrees, so we’re all set there. In a small dish soak the breadcrumbs in milk. Let stand while you get the sauce going.
