Gluten Free Thai Lamb Meatballs

My gluten free thai lamb meatballs recipe is perfect for summer. It’s quick, tasty, and hits the spot after a long day.

I have become obsessed with wrapping things in cabbage leaves (especially the gluten free thai lamb meatballs) using them as a wrap. Cabbage leaves are a great bread free alternative and give the meatballs a nice fresh crunch.

The fresh herbs and shredded veg sit next to the thai spiced meatballs. If you’re a veggie, you can make some veggie meatballs or if lamb’s not your cup of tea, fish, chicken or beef works too.

Share your recreations with me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #madeleineshaw #gettheglow I love seeing them!


Rub the lamb mince evenly in 1 tbsp of the thai paste and a good pinch of sea salt. Roll them into small golf balls and place in the fridge.

Julianne the carrot, cucumber, spring onion and red onion, mix with the juice of 1 lime and set to the side.

Place 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 1 tbsp of curry paste in a pan and heat to a medium heat. Throw in the balls and cook for 5 minutes until cooked through.

Break off a cabbage leaf and throw in some meat balls, top with fresh chopped basil, veg and lime juice.

    Hello,I was wondering which are your thoughts on meat in general.Should we consume it weekly,monthly,do you think that eating a little is better than not eating at all?Thank you for all these lovely recipes.

    I really love all of your recipes. They are full of flavour and it makes you feel smug when you know how good they are for you too. I have your book but I constantly check your website for other recipes too. A suggestion – Is it possible that you could make your print option with a few less pages? At the moment it is full of photos and extras. Thank you and keep doing what you do x
