Directions

The meatballs

1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder, and 1 cup shredded mozzarella until smooth.

2. In a separate bowl, mix ground turkey, egg, 1 cup shredded mozzarella, crumbled bouillon cube, parsley, salt, and pepper until evenly combined.

3. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, take a scoop of the meatball mixture and press it flat in the palm of your hand. Place a spoonful of the cream cheese stuffing in the center of the meat and delicately fold the edges over the cheese, sealing it and rolling into a ball. Repeat this process with the remaining ground meat and cream cheese stuffing.

4. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear meatballs on all sides for about 10-15 minutes, until cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside.

The cauliflower rice

1. In the same pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the riced cauliflower and stir to coat in melted butter. Cook, stirring regularly for 1 minute.

2. Stir in the 1/2 cup vegetable stock, hot sauce, and lemon zest (if using). Cook for one minute to reduce juices then add the lemon juice.

3. Adjust seasoning as needed. Stir in the parsley. Return the meatballs over cauliflower rice and reheat quickly. Serve with fresh cracked black pepper, red chili pepper flakes, and parmesan if you like. Enjoy!

Note: To make the meatballs juicier, you can mix in 1/3 of ground pork meat.
