Fun with Zoodles
Zoodles are fun. Not only are they fun to eat, but they are fun to say. For example, try saying zoodles multiple times in a row. See? Fun.
Do you have a spiralizer? I don’t because I have this gadget. By the way, since Christopher and I have zoodles more often now, I’m thinking I should get one because even though I love the gadget, it’s getting old, quickly.
So, do you have a spiralizer that you love? Let me know the brand in the comment section so I can check it out!!
I love zucchini. I grew up eating it all summer long. Zucchini and summer squash. Hence, here are other zucchini recipes that I’ve blogged about:
Do you have a go-to meal when you’re feeling bored of the usual food fare that passes your table?
This is my go-to meal. I love meatballs so much that I believe I would eat just about anything over them. However, there are limits. I wouldn’t have cream corned poured on them, nor would I nestle some hotdogs along side these round lovelies.
But laying some meatballs on zoodles and then smothering them with some curry sauce? Now that’s the curry meatballs recipe I would call perfect!
On to the Curry Meatballs on Zoodles Recipes
We have three zucchinis, a red pepper, onion, grass-fed beef, curry paste and certainly that julienne peeler gadget I talked about.
I peel the zucchini. It takes me about 10 minutes to get the zucchini cut into zoodles. Finally, I set them aside on a paper towel.
It’s Howdy Curry Time
Next, I start the curry sauce.
I set my wok on the stove and heat it to medium. While it heats up, I chop the onion and red pepper. Also, I toss a few tablespoons of olive oil into the wok and drop in the veggies.
As the veggies sauté, I start on the meatballs by placing the ground beef in my medium stainless steel mixing bowl and add an egg, salt, pepper, cumin, curry and almond flour.
I set the heat under my sauté pan to medium. At last I gear myself up to get my hands dirty. Furthermore, I dig in and massage the crap out of the meat.
Then I roll the meatballs into medium sized balls and set them aside.
As a result, the veggies are done by now.
My sauté pan is also ready. I add olive oil and the meatballs. I stand there and flip them every 2 minutes hence the meatballs take around 8 minutes. Also, I let them be a little underdone because I am going to cook them in the curry sauce.
Also, it’s time to deal with the curry. So, in my wok, I add 1/2 cup curry paste (that I made from Pinch of Yum’s recipe), 1 can of coconut cream, fish sauce, garlic paste and ginger paste. Furthermore, I bring the curry sauce to a boil and lower it to a simmer.
Finally, I add the meatballs and let them simmer for 5 minutes.
Sauté those Zoodles
During that 5 minutes, I put the zoodles in the sauté pan that had the meatballs in it and let them cook on medium/low.
When the timer dings, it’s finally time to eat.
I scoop some zoodles on my plate and also spoon some meatballs and curry sauce on top.
And now a bite.
So, I hope you enjoyed this Curry Meatballs on Zoodles recipe. Christopher raved about it. RAVED, I tell you. It is so good!
