Tomato Basil Bisque with Italian Meatballs

posted on

Serves: 4
    • 1 leek stalk, sliced thinly
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
    • ⅓ cup fresh chopped basil
    • ⅓ cup full-fat coconut milk
    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 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
    2. Combine the ground beef, garlic powder, dried oregano, onion powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Using a ¼ measuring up, scoop the meat mixture then form into a ball
    3. Place the raw meatballs on a baking sheet and place into the oven to cook for 12-15 minutes
    4. While the meatballs are cooking, sauté the sliced leek in olive oil just slightly below medium-high heat for roughly 5 minutes
    5. Pour the sautéed leeks from the saucepan into a blender, then add the diced tomatoes (with juice), fresh basil, and coconut milk. Blend until you reach the desired consistency (pulsing for a chunkier texture, blending on high for a creamy bisque)
    6. Pour the tomato basil bisque back into the saucepan and turn heat to medium-low, just to warm throughout
    7. Once the meatballs are finished cooking, add to the bisque
    8. Serve with grated parmesan or pecorino cheese if desired - Omit for WLC
