Thai Red Curry Meatballs – Low Carb and Gluten Free
So it’s Meatball Monday and have I got a great low carb meatball recipe for you guys! This was actually supposed to get posted last week, but I was having server issues and couldn’t post anything for a few days. On top of that, the entire post got deleted in the server switch and I had to start from scratch.
Mentally, I was too frustrated to even try rewriting it at the time, so I took a little blogging break for the week. Lest you think I was just lounging by the pool the whole time though (well, there may or may not have been some pool lounging, but even then my brain was smoking from all that thinking about working!) I was very busy behind the scenes, and on a project I’m excited to share with you guys very soon!
For now, let’s talk meatballs!
This recipe is really a complete low carb meal, though the meatball definitely remains the star. Loaded with delicious low carb veggies (baby corn, bok choi, eggplant, YUM), it’s very filling! Don’t shy away from the baby corn either, the entire can has only 4g net carbs due to the high fiber and low sugar content.
This dish is pretty versatile – the sauce is so delicious that you could replace the meatballs with any protein, or omit them altogether, and serve it as a veggie side, or if you’re vegetarian just add even more veggies or suitable vegetarian protein and you’re good to go. Or even skip the veggies, and just eat the meatballs and sauce like a Thai version of Swedish meatballs! There is no end to the combinations you could make here.
As always, I tried to jam a lot of flavor into the meatballs themselves, so that even if you go naked (the meatballs, not you) they will still taste great!
