Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Combine all meatball ingredients together in a large bowl and mix with your hands. Form into 1.5 inch meatballs and bake on a baking sheet at 350 for about 20 minutes until fully cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium sized pot, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Sauté the garlic, harissa paste, turmeric and garam masala together until fragrant; add tomato sauce and allow to simmer while meatballs cook; salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In another pan, sauté ginger and garlic in coconut oil and add in the cauliflower rice. Season with the spices and cook until cauliflower becomes tender.
  4. Plate everything together and top with scallions, mint, and sea salt (like Maldon flake salt, or French Grey Salt). Enjoy!
