Tomato and Sweet Pepper Sauce with Veggie Meatballs and Kohlrabi


From week to week I plan our menus. I only have one big shop to do at the grocery store, I know exactly what I am going to make and I usually look at my garden and I know what fresh fruits and vegetable I have available. On this occasion I had something completely different planned but for one i, it was Friday night, I wasn’t in the mood to make it and my hubby wanted something else. Usually this means a trip out but considering the haul from my garden usually includes over 4 cups of tomatoes, zucchinis the size of baseball bats and three or four large green peppers, sweet and hot, I knew I could wrestle up something. There was one condition, my hubby had to come out and help harvest our dinner.

To make the job even easier we decided on some frozen meatless meatballs by President Choice. I have always liked their meatballs for a fast curried meatballs or spaghetti and meatball dinner.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen.
