Albóndigas are the classic meatballs of Mexican cuisine, generally poached in soup. Traditionally they include raw rice in the meatballs, which cooks and expands as the meatballs poach. Our version is grain-free, but otherwise is inspired by traditional recipes--of which there are many family variations! Flavorful meatballs of California grassfed ground beef are cooked in a tomato-citrus broth with Riverdog Farm zucchini from the Capay Valley, Winding Roads Farm carrots from Sonoma, onions, celery, a hint of spice and a good handful of minced fresh cilantro.
