Curry meatballs and veggies

Source: Nourished and nurtured blog



  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 egg, beaten lightly with a fork

  • 1.5 Tb soy sauce

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger

  • handful of almond flour OR 1/4 cup grated carrots

  • 1/4 cup yogurt

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper


  • 3 large leeks OR 2 medium white onions, chopped 

  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped

  • Optional chopped seasonal veggies such as bok choy, snap peas, zucchini, and broccoli

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 Tb soy sauce

  • 1/2 Tb fish sauce

  • 1 cup beef or chicken stock

  • 1.5 tsp curry powder

  • Salt to taste


  1. Combine the meatball ingredients in a medium bowl. Use a spoon or your hands to make sure the ingredients are well-mixed.  Use a large spoon to make the meatballs and set them aside.  They can also easily be made several hours in advance and refrigerated until cooking time.
  2. Melt some cooking oil in a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat.  Add the veggies and a little sprinkle of salt. I like to cook the harder veggies (carrots, onions, broccoli, bok choy stems) for about ten minutes before adding any quicker-cooking veggies (like zucchini, bok choy leaves, or snap peas).
  3. Once the veggies are mostly cooked, push them to the side of the pan and scoot the pan so that the veggies are not directly over the flame/heating element.
  4. Melt more cooking fat brown the meatballs.  Turn them after a few minutes.  There is no need to make sure the meatballs are completely cooked at this stage, so just brown the outside.
  5. Add the garlic to the pan and cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Add the broth, soy sauce, fish sauce, and curry powder. Gently stir the meatballs and veggies together.
  7. Allow the meatballs and veggies to simmer for about 5-10 minutes in the broth.  Cover the pan if the broth is cooking down too quickly. Taste the veggies/broth and adjust the salt as necessary.
  8. Ladle into bowls and serve! The meatballs and veggies make a great meal on their own, or you can pair them with a simple side of spaghetti squash or brown rice.  Enjoy!
