Nom Nom Paleo + Whole30 by Michelle Tam

You’re one-third of the way through your reset, and what better way to mark this milestone than by making my lip-smackingly delicious Whole30 Wonton Meatballs?

These meatballs are no joke, people. Umami-packed and bursting with Asian flavors, these morsels remind me of my mom’s pork and shrimp wontons, only without the gluten-y wrapper. It’s no wonder my Whole30-friendly Wonton Meatballs have become an instant Nom Nom Paleo classic.

I’d be remiss, however, if I didn’t share with you that my favorite way to prepare these Wonton Meatballs is to squash the balls down before cooking, and then pan-frying the patties in a skillet to make Wonton Meatball Sliders. That way, you won’t even need to turn on your oven!

A note to my Nomsters: This is one of a series of daily blog posts I’m writing in the month of January 2018 to help those doing a Whole30 to kick off the New Year. Not sure what the Whole30 is, or want info on how to get started? Read my Whole30 prep post—and then come back to Nom Nom Paleo every single day for recipes to inspire, delight, and sustain you on your Whole30!

And remember: Throughout January 2018, I’m partnering with Whole Foods Market nationwide! In all Whole Foods Market stores, you’ll find my personally curated Nom Nom Paleo Picks on the shelves, a rotating menu of ready-to-eat Nom Nom Paleo dishes in the hot bar, and even my famous Magic Mushroom Powder available for sale!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.

  2. I would love to see these at Whole Foods! They look delicious! Either in the pre-made meat section or cooked in their hot food bar. I can’t wait to try them.
