Swedish Meatballs ~ THM S


I came up with this recipe on a whim one night. I went to the freezer to find meat to cook for dinner. I found a bag of Marvelous Make-ahead Meatballs (Trim Healthy Table pg. 208). I immediately thought Swedish Meatballs and veggies, so I looked up a traditional recipe and made it work for THM. The original recipe can be found HERE.

Swedish Meatballs ~ THM S

This highlight of this recipe is the sauce. You can use any meatballs (or technically any meat) that you like. I used the Marvelous Make-ahead Meatballs from Trim Healthy Table pg. 208.  Then you can serve the meat and sauce with any veggie you like. You can serve it over konjac noodles to keep it an S or serve it over brown rice for a crossover.
Course Main Course


  • 32 meatballs

For Sauce

  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp oat fiber
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp mineral salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • 12 oz frozen cauliflower
  • 12 oz frozen broccoli

Optional Serving Suggestions

  • 1 package konjac noodles per person
  • cooked brown rice



  • Set a 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat. Melt butter and add oat fiber to skillet.
  • Whisk for about minute until toasty and browned.
  • Slowly stir in beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, ground mustard, salt and pepper. Add in heavy cream and stir. Cook for about 2 minutes to give sauce a start on thickening.
  • Add meatballs to the pan and coat with the sauce. (My meatballs were still mostly frozen.)
  • Add veggies to the pan as well. You can use any veggies you want for this dish. Shredded cabbage would be great. Green beans would be good as well.
  • Simmer for 8-12 minutes till meatballs are heated through and vegetables are done to your liking. Serve just like it is or over noodles or rice.


If you choose to serve over konjac noodles you could add them straight to the sauce before adding the meat and vegetables. This would give the noodles the chance to absorb all the flavors of the sauce.
Want to lighten this up? Use almond or cashew milk instead of the heavy cream.

  1. I LOVE Swedish Meatballs!! I also like the idea having them with cabbage. I think I will saute the cabbage first and then put the Swedish Meatballs over the top. Yum! It is grocery/menu planning week and these just got added! Thanks for another great recipe! Happy New Year!
