Tomato Basil Bisque w/ Italian Meatballs (whole30)


  • 1 leek stalk, sliced thinly

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes

  • ⅓ cup fresh chopped basil

  • ⅓ cup full-fat coconut milk

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder

  • 1½ teaspoons salt

  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Combine the ground beef, garlic powder, dried oregano, onion powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Using a ¼ measuring up, scoop the meat mixture then form into a ball

  3. Place the raw meatballs on a baking sheet and place into the oven to cook for 12-15 minutes

  4. While the meatballs are cooking, sauté the sliced leek in olive oil just slightly below medium-high heat for roughly 5 minutes

  5. Pour the the sautéed leeks from the saucepan into a blender, then add the diced tomatoes (with juice), fresh basil, and coconut milk. Blend until you reach the desired consistency (pulsing for a chunkier texture, blending on high for a creamy bisque)

  6. Pour the tomato basil bisque back into the saucepan and turn heat to medium-low, just to warm throughout

  7. Once the meatballs are finished cooking, add to the bisque

  8. Serve with grated parmesan or pecorino cheese if desired
