Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Make the meatballs. Mix the meat with the spices,garlic, onion, lime basil, hoisin and soy sauce until evenly distributed.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • You have probably heard by now that whole wheat bread is better for you than white bread. While this is true and definitely worth considering, you should be aware that all bread (especially your typical supermarket loaves) will raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your bread (and all other ingredients) is truly gluten free.

Price Tips

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • Carrots can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The starch in the carrots will turn to sugar over time, but this is not a problem, they'll just taste sweeter. The academy lesson about carrots contains more useful information.

  • Fresh herbs should be added toward the end of the cooking process — even at the very last minute?especially delicate herbs like cilantro, basil, and dill. Hardier herbs like bay leaves, rosemary, and thyme can be added earlier.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

Green Tips

  • Choose organic, pasture raised pork to avoid antibiotics, hormones, and genetically modified feed. It is better for your health, for the animals, and for the planet. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating vegetarian meals more often during the week so you can splurge on better meat on the weekends.
