Chia Seed Italian Meatball

Italian meatballs are a favorite of many because of their spicy bold taste. Here is an easy recipe that includes Chia seed for additional nutritional value as well as the great taste.

  • 10 oz ground beef
  • 5 oz tomato paste
  • 2 tsp. stock powder (there are some brands that are gluten free if you choose)
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tbsp. Chia seed

Place all ingredients (including the Chia seed) into a medium mixing bowl and form your meatballs.
Cook over a medium flame (or heat if your using electric) taking care to tune the meatballs to prevent burning. Cooking time is 10-15 minutes for a decent meatball and longer if you make them bigger.

Serve with pasta or by themselves with either a salad or veggies.

By adding Chia seed to this pretty basic recipe you have turned a normal meal into something very nutritious!
