For the gravy

  • 1tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 unsweetened nut milk (I use Nutpods Original Creamer)

Cooking the meatballs

  1. Add all the meatball ingredients except for the ghee to a bowl and combine well
  2. Add the ghee to a pan and heat to medium
  3. Using your hands, roll the meatball mixture into 2 inch (or whatever size you prefer) sized balls and place in the pan
  4. Cook meatballs for about 7 minutes and then turn them upside down and cook the other side for another 7 minutes
  5. Once you have cooked both sides of the meatballs, using tongs, turn the meatballs on their sides and cook each side for 2 minutes then remove from the pan and place on a plate

Making the Gravy

  1. To the pan that you cooked the meatballs, add the ghee and let it melt a minute or two on medium-low heat then whisk in the arrowroot flour and let cook for 2 minutes
  2. After you have whisked in the arrowroot flour and let cook for a few minutes whisk in the coconut aminos, dijon, and nut milk
  3. After combined, slowly add in the broth and whisk everything together
  4. Let the gravy thicken for about 5 minutes whisking occasionally 
  5. Once the gravy is thickened add the meatballs back into the pan with the gravy and turn the heat to low

Cooking the potatoes

  1. Cut the potatoes into chunks and add to a pot halfway filled with boiling water
  2. Let the potatoes boil till fork tender (about 15 minutes)
  3. Once the potatoes are fork tender, drain the water and return the pot with the potatoes to the stove
  4. Add in the ghee, nut milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and mash together

Serve the meatballs and sauce over top of the mashed potatoes
