Ingredients

Scale

For the Meatballs

For the Tzatziki (regular):

  • 3/4 cup full-fat, grass-fed, Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons grated & drained fresh cucumber (water squeezed out)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • Pinch fine sea salt

For the Tzatziki (dairy-free and Paleo):

  • 1/2 cup thick cream from a can of full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, more if needed to thin
  • 3 tablespoons grated & drained fresh cucumber (squeeze the water out)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • Pinch fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Add all ingredients for the meatballs to a large bowl. Mix with your hands until seasonings, onion, garlic, and olives are fully incorporated.
  3. Scoop the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned and fully cooked through.
  5. For the traditional and Paleo-friendly tzatziki: whisk the ingredients together and set aside until ready to serve. Note: for the coconut milk-based tzatziki, you may need to whisk vigorously until all lumps are out. Add more lemon juice or even water until you get the consistency you like.
