Moroccan Meatballs

Kefta is a traditional Moroccan meatball dish spiced with cumin, paprika, cinnamon, parsley, and cilantro simmered in a sauce that contains tomatoes and olives. It is traditionally cooked in an earthenware pot called a tagine, but it can be prepared in a slow cooker, a pressure cooker, or stovetop in a Dutch oven. Kefta is gluten-free and is compatible. One serving of 5 meatballs is 334 calories and 6 Points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle Plan.

  • Olives help make the sauce a bit different than the normal tomato sauce you’re used to.
  • The meatball, known as kefta, uses cinnamon, cumin, and cilantro to make a potent combination.
  • The recipe is fairly safe, running 6 freestyle points on weight watchers.
