Low carb comfort food that is Paleo/Keto and Whole30 compliant. Instead of cornstarch you will be using arrowroot and non dairy yogurt to thicken your gravy.

Course: dinner
Keyword: cauliflower puree, gravy, keto, meatballs, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 8 cups cauliflower, stem removed and broken into florets
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
  • 20 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (for thickening gravy)
  • 4 tablespoons non dairy plain yogurt (I use cashew or coconut yogurt)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. For Cauliflower

  2. Wash cauliflower, cut off stem and break into florets, steam until soft. When cauliflower is soft. Place half the cooked cauliflower into a food processor with 1 tablespoon ghee (or butter) and a couple pinches of sea salt and black pepper, blend until smooth (you can also use a potato masher and do it by hand) Repeat with second batch.

  3. While cauliflower is steaming, make meatballs

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Place ground turkey, egg, and almond meal in a bowl, work with hands until well blended. Add spices, 2 tablespoons chives and two generous pinches sea salt and black pepper, work with hands until mixed well

  5. Using wet hands form into 1 1/2" meatballs 

  6. In a large pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the meatballs and cook, turning once, until golden brown but not yet cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes total. Turn off heat (do not clean the pan) Transfer to oven safe baking dish and place in oven for 5 minutes (or until cooked through)

  7. Place 2 tablespoon swarm water in a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder and whisk until smooth (this is called a slurry and will thicken your gravy). Set aside. 

  8. Return the pan used for the meatballs to high heat: Whisk in the chicken stock scraping browned bits off bottom of pan, bring broth to a boil. Once you have achieved a boil, turn off heat. Add the slurry, whisking vigorously. Return to low heat, allow 2 to 3 minutes for gravy to thicken (do not allow to boil. When gravy is desired consistency gradually add the non-dairy yogurt,  1 tablespoon at a time, whisking between additions until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. When the meatballs are cooked through, remove from oven and place in gravy pan.

  9. Place pureed cauliflower on plates, top with meatballs and gravy, garnish with remaining chives (If desired, drizzle some melted ghee over potatoes)

Jalapeño Turkey Burgers!

I had the pleasure of leading a Whole 30 group in January (and will again in March!). It was amazing. And one of the things I love most about Whole 30 is it really makes you into a better cook! When you aren’t eating grains, dairy or legumes, you need to get creative with textures and flavors to keep things interesting and avoid food boredom. This extraordinary Jalapeño Turkey Burger is a perfect example.

Jalapeño Turkey Burgers : Paleo, Whole 30 and Keto!

I love a burger with a little kick to it and these juicy burgers have one! I use 85% lean ground turkey so the burger has enough fat so that it doesn’t dry out.

Don’t these Jalapeño Turkey Burgers look amazing?! Top them with guacamole, pico de gallo and poached egg and serve with a side of sweet potato fries for an amazing Paleo dinner! #whole30 #paleo

Don’t these burgers look amazing? I can’t take full credit for them…although I would sure like to. They are a variation of a recipe one of the participants in my Whole 30 group created (thanks Lisa!)  Of course, I had to throw a perfectly poached egg on them. Because that’s how I roll.
