These paleo swedish meatballs taste just like the real thing. The creamy dairy free sauce combined with the pork and beef meatballs served with cassava flour noodles are to die for! With this recipe, you can have dinner on the table within 30 minutes.
What makes these paleo swedish meatballs so good?
- The creamy sauce! This whole30 swedish meatball sauce is super creamy yet it is dairy free.
- This recipe can be on the table in less than 30 minutes!
Paleo swedish meatball ingredients:
- Ground pork and ground beef-I like to do half and half to give these gluten free meatballs more flavor. You can for sure use all ground beef or all ground pork if you would prefer but it may change the flavor a little bit. I like to get all of my proteins from Butcher Box. They send me a monthly supply of all of my favorite meats and seafood. I keep them in the freezer and defrost them the night before. If you use my code here, you can get free bacon for life!
- Garlic, cinnamon, and nutmeg-This is what flavors the meatballs. If you are doing the autoimmune protocol, skip the nutmeg!
- Yellow onion-Chopped. This adds even more flavor.
- Egg-This acts as a binder. SKIP for AIP.
- Cassava flour-My go to flour of choice for paleo baking. You can use almond flour if you are not doing AIP. I only use Otto’s.
- Jovial cassava noodles-My go to noodles! I am obsessed with cassava noodles! They are super delicious. If you use my link for THRIVE MARKET here you can save on your first order. I always buy these noodles in bulk at my house!
- Coconut milk-This is the gravy liquid. I like Trader Joe’s canned coconut milk. It is AIP friendly.
- Bone broth-To add more flavor.
- Lemon juice-This adds to the taste.
- Garlic, salt, nutmeg-To add flavor. If you are doing AIP skip the nutmeg.
- Arrowroot powder-This is like cornstarch. It makes the gravy nice and thick.
- Broccoli-Optional to serve with.
How to make whole30 Swedish meatballs?
- First, preheat your oven to 350. Mix all of the meatball ingredients in a bowl and scoop out onto a cookie sheet.
- Bake the meatballs for 20 minutes.
- While the meatballs cook, make the pasta according to the instructions on the box with some salt.
- Then, for the gravy add all ingredients to a saucepan on medium heat and continuously whisk until smooth. If you notice the liquid is too liquidy, add a ½ tsp more arrowroot powder.
How should I serve these AIP Swedish meatballs?
- I love to serve them with the cassava flour noodles and broccoli.
How should I reheat?
- You can for sure reheat in the microwave, but I like reheating on the stove best!
Chef’s tips for gluten free swedish meabtalls:
- Make sure to cook your noodles al dente, cassava noodles absorb a lot of moisture so when you add them to the gravy they will loosen up a bit. That said, cooking them all will help!
