In this one-pan Paleo-Whole30-Keto friendly meal, we serve paprika-spiced pork meatballs with a cauliflower “rice,” dressed up with dried figs and watercress. If you can't find cauliflower rice at your market, you can chop raw cauliflower until it resembles rice, or whirl florets in a food processor until 'riced"
- 10 ounces ground pork
- 1 organic egg
- 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic

- 3-4 organic shallots
- 1/4 cup dried figs (Optional for keto)

Prep the meatballs
Let ground pork rest on paper towels to drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a medium bowl, using a fork or whisk, blend the egg, spices and almond meal.
Add the ground pork, season generously with salt and pepper, and mix until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
Cook the meatballs
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 olive oil until hot but not smoking.
Working in batches if needed, add the meatballs and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
While the meatballs cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.

Peel and thinly slice the shallots.

Cook the cauliflower “rice”

Stir in the figs (optional for carb watchers) and cook until starting to soften, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the watercress, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the cauliflower “rice” to individual plates and top with the meatballs. Drizzle with oil, if desired, and serve.
