I Dream of Meatballs (Paleo)

Asian Meatballs

Two nights ago I had a dream.....literally....about meatballs.Don't worry folks, this is normal...I have come up with some doosies in my dreams,(I have a great frosting recipe,as well...note to self).These came out pretty tasty...although I would probably add carrots next time.

3 lbs. ground chicken
1 can water chestnuts
bamboo shoots
1 egg
1/4 cup ground almonds
gluten free soy sauce
chopped onion
1 tsp. asian 5 spice
dash of asian fish sauce
dash of hoisin sauce

In a food processor, grind all the veggies.Add veggie mixture to ground chicken.You could use ground turkey,(if you like the taste of gym shoes).Mix together,add the egg, make into balls and fry with a dab of olive oil on medium heat.Please don't taste these as you are making them or you will get salmonella,(I always taste my meat meatballs, which is o.k.).You can brown them in the pan and finish off in the oven. Secret is to get your pan hot, which creates a crust on your meatballs and keeps them moist.
