Recipe Alert! Gluten-and-dairy-free Saucy Meat(less) Balls!


Hello, Darlings! It's your favorite sparkly Unicorn here with a new Phat Unicorn! recipe for you. I've been striving for a little while now to create a delicious, healthy, gluten- AND dairy-free meatball, with mixed success. I've had a few that were OK, and some that were pretty good. I think the current iteration that I'm bringing you today is in the 'pretty good' category, good enough to share. And I'll keep striving for PERFECT. (Stay tuned, because when I create that PERFECT meat(less) ball, you'll be the first to know about it! Well, other than Partner, because a Unicorn's gotta have taste-testers, right?

So, without further ado, Phat Unicorn! Gluten-and-dairy-free Saucy Meat(less) Balls!

Please note: In this photo, the balls are dry. I wanted to show what
they looked like before they got gooey. And, believe it or not, gooey 
balls are - in this one, specific case - a good thing!

Good morning, Darlings! I hope you're all having a fabulous springtime, or at least that springtime is starting wherever you are. It's been a long, cold winter for most of us. Even in Sunny Florida, we felt the gray days and cold, but now spring is in swing, and Partner and I are LOVING it!

We've just moved to gorgeous Palm Coast (on the Atlantic side, for those who don't know), just half an hour south of fabulous, historic Saint Augustine! Shops, attractions, and FOOD of all sorts - and I have to avoid it like the plague for another month and a half. Can I get a BOO, friends and neighbor Darlings?!

And, "Why?!", I hear you ask, would your own sparkly PhatUnicorn be avoiding food? Long story, too long to go into here, but I'm working on my health and nutrition, and part of that involves not eating at restaurants or other fun places for two months or so. Waah... ::insert crying sparkly unicorn here...::

Once that's over, I'll be back to my mostly-vegetarian, mostly-paleo, mostly-gluten- and mostly-dairy-free lifestyle, hopefully feeling a whole lot stronger, healthier and more fit. Looking forward to sharing some more delectably tempting recipes with you, as well as exploring some not-too-naughty options in St. A and other new areas here in NE Florida (and beyond). You can't keep a good unicorn down!

In the meantime, if you'd like to show off your sassy sparkle and get your SWAG on, visit the PhatUnicorn! shop on Cafe Press

Cheers to you all, and hope you're well. Thanks, as always, for reading. Stay fabulous, and sparkle like you mean it!
