Zucchini Sweet Potato bake with Meatballs

That looks so good! The recipe on Paleo OMG looked unbelievably good. Today I decided to give it a try. 

Of course I changed the recipe. Taking something and putting my own spin to it is one of my favorite things to do.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 small zucchinis, shredded
1 small y sweet potato shredded
1 red onion, shredded
1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 pound grass fed ground beef
1 (14 ounce) can of diced tomatoes
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Spinach, roughly chopped

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Use a grater or shredding attachment on a food processor to shred the zucchini, sweet potato and red onion.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat, add coconut oil and minced garlic, then add the zucchini, sweet potato and onion.
  • Let vegetables cook down until soft, then add ½ tablespoon Mrs. Dash and Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika and cayenne pepper and a bit of salt and pepper to the vegetables and mix around to coat.
  • Then add the diced tomatoes.
  • Transfer vegetable mixture into a glass Pyrex dish.
  • Place ground beef in a bowl along with the rest of the spices and some salt and pepper. Add in spinach and form into meatballs.  
  • I made 12 meatballs with the pound of meat.
  • Press each meatball into the vegetable mixture.
Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through.
It was unbelievably good!!

What I Learned
Many times we are introduced to things that seem unbelievably good, yet we can be skeptical as to their validity. "Could this really be as good as it claims to be? "
How many times have we seen infomercials and thought, "I'd like to try it but it probably won't work?  Other times we put our trust into something and we end up being disappointed because it wasn't as good as the product or recipe claimed to be. 

Time after time of being let down begins to wear us down and pretty soon we begin to trust less and less. 
There is one person who has always been and always will be reliable! He is unbelievably good! 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.  Psalm 118
