These Harissa Chicken Meatballs are a fun twist on meatballs. Plus, they’re low- carb, grain-free, and gluten-free since I use cauliflower rice instead of breadcrumbs.
1/2cupfrozen riced cauliflower
1/4cuppacked chopped parsley
3large peeled garlic cloves(minced)
Olive-oil cooking spray
2jars(10 oz each prepared mild harissa sauce (I love Mina Harissa))
Place chicken in a large mixing bowl, break- up slightly. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and smoked paprika.
Add frozen cauliflower, parsley, onion, garlic, and egg and mix just until ingredients are combined. Avoid over-mixing. Divide chicken mixture into 16 portions ( about 1 1/4 ounce each); gently shape into balls.
Heat a heavy-duty non-stick large skillet (with tall sides) over medium-high heat.
Spray with olive oil cooking spray, add meatballs and cook, turning occasionally to brown on all sides, about 6 minutes.
Pour in harissa and allow mixture to reach a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
