This is a healthy little snack or light main that’s high in nutrients and can really help to stretch a pound of ground meat further. A win-win in my book.

Sweet Potato Chicken Meatballs
1 lb. ground chicken
1.5 cups grated sweet potato
2 Tbsp. flour (as a binder – potato starch or tapioca flour would work well)
2 scallions, minced
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. onion powder
2 tsp. soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. light oil – I used turmeric olive oil; coconut or nut oil would be fine
2 Tbsp. cornstarch (arrowroot powder is fine)
2 tsp. ground cumin
Combine all ingredients and mix until incorporated. Parcel out into golf ball sized meatballs and bake at 200C/375F 10 minutes; flip, bake an additional 10 minutes.
Serves 4 as a main and more as a snack
