Recipe substitutions or variations

Substitutions:

Gluten-free flour substitutions: Instead of using a gluten-free flour blend, you can use white for brown rice flour, or any other gluten-free flour of your choice.

Beef and pork substitutions:
Instead of using ground beef and pork, you can swap it out for ground chicken or turkey, or any other combination.

Dried herb substitutions: Feel free to swap out any of the dried herbs for fresh ones. If you are using fresh, use double the amount that the recipe calls for. I highly suggest getting fresh mint for the coconut yogurt dip. It is delicious.

Garlic powder substitutions: Instead of powdered garlic powder, you can swap it out for 1 fresh garlic clove.

Variations:

Make this recipe lower calorie/fat: Make sure to get lean ground pork and beef, or swap out the meat for ground chicken or turkey or a combination of both. You could also consider cutting down the amount of gluten-free panko breadcrumbs and gluten-free flour.

Make this recipe paleo/low carb: Omit the gluten-free panko breadcrumbs and flour, and instead use either cassava flour, or a small amount of tapioca starch or a low carb thickener. For low carb, you could also add one egg to help the meatballs stick together.

Make this recipe AIP: Omit the gluten-free panko breadcrumbs and gluten-free flour, and instead use cassava flour or a small amount of tapioca starch.

Make this recipe low FODMAP: Omit the garlic powder.
