Meatballs with Calamari and Peas

Hello Friends,

Here is a recipe that you will enjoy making for your family and friends.  Enjoy the holiday, or any time you can put the spirit of cooking into your daily meal.

1/2 pound ground pork

1/2 pound ground beef

1 pound calamari

1/3 pound peas (in a can)

2 red onions

1 can crushed tomatoes

1 egg yolk

3 garlic cloves

1 bunch of parsley

rice flour

1 slice (gluten free) bread

olive oil



almonds (roasted)

a pinch of saffron

Chop: almonds, parsley, mix in saffron


Prepare the meatballs with pork, beef, 2 garlic cloves (crushed), egg yolk, a couple of branches of parsley chopped finely, bread chopped into small pieces.  Mix all together with a food processor or manually.  Create the meatballs.  I like them small, half of a golf-ball-size, but they can be as big as a golf ball if you like!

When round, roll them in the rice flour that you have set previously on a plate. Then you can fry them lightly all around.

In the same oil, add the onion and the crushed tomato.  When cooked, add the calamari. Stir a little bit and add 1/2 cup of water.  Let it cook until the calamari is soft.  Add the meatballs, the chopped ingredients, and the peas together.

Taste to make sure the salt is on point and let it simmer a while until it is all cooked.
