Pasta and meatballs are a classic, comforting dish, but there are more possibilities than the carb-heavy grain pasta and beef meatball version.

You’ll find these chicken Hemp meatballs to be a little lighter and more nuanced. Over a helping of spiralized zucchini, it’s the perfect match of freshness and taste, but let’s not stop there.

With a rich but bright Romesco sauce, this dish opens up a whole new world of Mediterranean flavor.


Enjoy these chickens over your favorite primal noodle. You can use raw zucchini noodles or lightly saute or roast them prior to eating.

You can also serve these meatballs over cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash, or sweet potato noodles. If you don’t have hazelnuts, you can switch up the romesco sauce by substituting almonds or walnuts.

For more flavor, roast the nuts prior to blending them into the sauce.

Mixing the ingredients

Preheat your oven to 375 ºF. Rub avocado oil all over the pepper and tomato and place it in the oven on a parchment covered sheet pan or oven-safe dish.

The tomato will only need 15-20 minutes to be nicely roasted. Remove the tomato and set it aside once roasted and soft.

Flip the pepper every 15 minutes or so until the skin of the pepper is nicely charred. This will take about 50-60 minutes in all. Set the pepper aside with the tomato to cool.

In a bowl, combine all the chicken and ingredients together.

Allow the mixture to rest for 5 minutes. Form 9-12 meatballs from the mixture and place them on a lightly oiled sheet pan or glass dish.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 ºF.

Peel the stem of the pepper off and discard the stem and the seeds inside of the pepper.

Run the pepper under water and peel off and discard the skin of the pepper.

Place the pepper, tomato, and remaining romesco ingredients in a blender or food processor and blitz until the nuts are small and a sauce forms.

You can leave the sauce a little rustic and chunky or blend it more to make it smooth.

Spoon some romesco sauce over your zucchini and top with the chicken meatballs. Spoon the remaining sauce on top and garnish with chopped parsley and Hemp hearts.

This is a new experiment in the cuisine, hemp as everyone know it can be used in with anything, in this case it was added together with meet to make a fantastic and enjoyable dish, which I tried myself on the weekend.

Hemp oil is fantastic, but I believe Marijuana oil is also amazing in terms of helping people and animals with improving their health conditions.

I hope you did like this article and please share or leave a comment. Thank you

  1. Hemp recipes are for creative dishes. This recipe must be as beautiful as other cannabis dishes. It is low in calories and easy to digest. I don’t know what it tastes like if you can tell me if hemp will fit well with this recipe. I wonder if you have tried this dish once or more times.

      Thank you, Miro, for the comments. As you know hemp has many benefits as raw material I think it can be used for anything.

      As some people are saying it is just the tip of iceberg.
