Mediterranean Meatballs

What can I say? I love, love , love anything Mediterranean. And if it can be easily prepped and made portable, then all the better! So these were absolutely a win in my book!

If I’m being totally honest, these didn’t actually get used as intended; these were supposed to be a few lunches throughout the week. But as I was photographing these 8 meatballs, I heard from the other room “hey babe, these taste like, Mediterranean or something!”…yep, my husband ate 10 of them. So I said “what the heck” and the rest became our dinner!

Full of traditional Mediterranean flavor (without the bread, egg or nightshades), these paired AMAZINGLY with my Dairy Free Tzatziki sauce.
