I’m really clueless as to why it has taken me so long to come up with a recipe like this. I’m a curry fiend… ask anyone. I love Thai curry, Indian curry, you name it. However, once I discovered how easy it was to make curry at home, there was no turning back.

I love picking up curry paste at the local grocery store and getting down with the stove. Seriously, once you pick some curry paste up, you’ll understand why it is such a game changer.

These Best Ever Whole30 Curry Meatballs were finished by my husband in TWO days… I got to eat… 3 meatballs- total.

Thanks babe.

I’m so excited to be teaming up with KitchenAid for these meatballs.

I was able to get my hands on their gorgeous 9-cup food processor, and it truly brought this recipe over the top.

I loved that I was able to just throw all of my meatball ingredients into the food processor and give it a whirl. It’s so convenient to have and it looks really beautiful on my countertop.

THE PERFECT WHOLE30 NOMS

I have a few theories as to why these meatballs are so good.

  1. They are loaded up with all kinds of fresh herbs and vegetables… nothing boring or nutrient deficient here!

  2. The curry sauce they are swimming in is to die for!

  3. A little fish sauce adds so much umami… and goes a long way!

I really wanted to come up with a recipe for a protein that could be served cold on top of some sort of salad but also warm with some veggies or cauliflower rice. After trying these Best Ever Whole30 Curry Meatballs cold, I can assure you they stand up to the test.

Trust me.

Usually, my hubby is too lazy to heat up leftovers. However, in this case, he really had the right idea. I tried a ball cold and was completely sold on it.

Imagine how incredibly easy it would be to throw these onto a large bed of greens with some extra veggies, pour some curry sauce on top and chow down on your break at work. No microwave necessary!

I’m patting myself on the back as I type this… for real.

But anyway,

this week is going to be SO MUCH FUN!

COOKIES, BROWNIES & BARS

I think I’ve put out a few teasers about a new project I’m working on with my good friend and blogger gal pal Rachel over at Bakerita.

She makes all of the yummy paleo goodies and only lives an hour from me. We’ve been hanging out a couple of times a month and having a blast shooting recipes together.

We thought it would be a really fun idea to collaborate and create a series of ebooks together…! What do you think?

Have you seen her website?

If you’re not completely sold on the idea yet, you will be after perusing through her blog for a few minutes. Tomorrow, I am heading to her loft bright and early, and we are going to be shooting our first four recipes. I am really looking forward to it, as Rachel’s loft just happens to have the best lighting ever.

All of our baked goods are going to look insanely delish. Oh, and did you see what I said about cookies, brownies and bars above? You guessed it. Our first ebook is going to be filled with them. GET REAL EXCITED!

I promise to keep you updated with any news surrounding the ebook. We’re hoping to get everything done and release it in the next month or two… so keep your eyes and ears peeled and open, okay?

This post is sponsored by the lovely folks at KitchenAid. Thank you for allowing me to continue creating such incredible content by supporting relationships with incredible brands and companies that The Movement Menu enjoys working with! Opinions will always remain 100% my own!

Ingredients
Meatballs
Curry Sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and adjust the oven rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place all of the ingredients (except the beef) for the meatballs in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for 30 seconds or so until mixed well. Do not over process, as it will become mushy! Add the meat and process a few more times.
  3. Roll into 1 1/2 - 2" balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes and rotate the pan 180 degrees. Bake for another 10-15 until they have reached your desired doneness. I like mine cooked to a medium doneness, so I pulled them out after 30 minutes. While they finish cooking, prepare the curry sauce.
  5. In a medium saucepan, heat the coconut milk until is begins to simmer. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk well. Bring to a low boil and turn the heat down to low. Let simmer and thicken for 10-15 minutes. if you like your sauce a bit thicker, you can add the arrowroot mixture (see the bottom of the Curry Sauce ingredients list!)
  6. Serve the meatballs on a bed of cauliflower rice or regular rice (if you aren't Whole30ing!) Cover with the curry sauce and garnish with fresh herbs and red pepper flakes.

    These are so amazing! We have actually made them a few too many times and they never fail. My husband is always a little nervous about anything too clean 🙂 and he LOVES these, we even made extra sauce, so we could pour it on anything and everything! This is in our regular rotation!

      Hi McKenzie, wow this makes me so incredibly happy to hear! The sauce is just the best, isn’t it? Drinkable 😉
      Can you do me a huge favor and give the recipe a rating (1-5 stars)? You can do so towards the bottom of the recipe post. That helps me out a ton!

    Sounds yummy but the Thai curry paste linked is not Whole 30 compliant (Soy), do you happen to know one that is?

    1. The Movement Menu

      September 24, 2017 at 1:59 pm

      Hi there, the red curry paste by Thai Kitchen doesn’t seem to have any soy in it… can you link me?

      1. Patti

        September 25, 2017 at 8:08 pm

        Thanks I found that the one in the small jar does not have soy but the Amazon link takes you to one that’s in a larger tub and it does have soy. Both the same brand Thai Kitchen. I bought the right one!

          Oh, how strange! Thank you for making me aware of this… I’m changing the Amazon link now!!! Please let me know what you think of the meatballs 🙂
