The possibilities for the 'Meat in a muffin' tin idea are endless. It's also easy to hide veggies in the recipe and the kids love the visual spread.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (4 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (3 beneficials)
  • Type AB (3 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type B (1 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (2 beneficials)
  • Type O (4 beneficials)

  • Entree

  • 2 pounds ground beef or turkey
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 ribs of celery
  • 1 large egg
  • 1- 2 cups spelt breadcrumbs
  • tomato sauce or compliant spaghetti sauce
  • olive oil
  • 1 cup or less chicken stock [or other compliant stock]
  • 2 tablespoons Kelp powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds or ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons wheat-free tamari sauce
  • sea salt - fine

How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Puree onion, egg, chicken stock, kelp, cumin, tamari, salt, and celery in chopper/blender. Taste the puree and season accordingly (more salt? tamari? etc.)
  3. Combine ground beef or turkey, sauce, and bread crumbs in a big bowl. Use plenty of bread crumbs as it soaks up excess moisture while cooking.
  4. Wash up and lightly brush muffin tins with olive oil.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to fill the muffin tins.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Cut one of the muffins open and check to see if it has cooked completely.
  8. Serve with your favorite compliant sauce (could be the same sauce as above) or top with compliant cheese. Personally, I loved the turkey muffins with a slice of melted goat cheese and chives on top.
