Super Healthy Chicken Meatballs & Eggplant "Spaghetti"

Whipped these up last night and I'm obsessed!! I made mine the Paleo way, but you can add whatever works best for you.



 


Ingredients:
2 chicken breasts
1/2c of almond flour (or breadcrumbs)
1/4 of one onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 c egg whites or 1 egg
Italian Seasoning (Oregano, Basil, Rosemary)
1 Eggplant, sliced into thin ribbons
Tomato Sauce ( no judgment if its from a jar!)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper



What To Do:

Preheat oven to 425.

Ground up the chicken, onion and garlic in a chopper or processor with a few drizzles of oil. 

Put the chicken mixture in a bowl and add flour/breadcrumbs, seasonings and egg. Mix throughly. 

Form the mixture into small balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes. 

While the meatballs are baking, add the eggplant ribbons to boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Add in a few pinches of salt while it's cooking too. 

Remove meatballs from the oven. Add to a saucepan with tomato sauce and heat until you're ready to serve. 

To serve, plate the eggplant first, top with meatballs and sauce.
