Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 28-ounce can plum tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup fresh chopped basil
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine the ground beef, garlic powder, breadcrumbs, dried oregano, onion powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Form the meat into small meatballs with your hands.
  3. Place the uncooked meatballs on a baking sheet and place into the oven to cook for 12-15 minutes.
  4. Pour the olive oil, tomatoes (with juice), fresh basil, and coconut milk into a blender. Blend until you reach the desired consistency you prefer. I like it to be nice and smooth.
  5. Pour the tomato basil bisque back into the saucepan and turn heat to low, just to warm throughout.
  6. Once the meatballs are finished cooking, add them to the bisque.
  7. Serve with grated parmesan or pecorino cheese on top, if desired. Sprinkle some fresh basil on top (optional). Enjoy!
