Icelandic Meatballs & Cabbage

These are traditionally made with pork and beef, or pork, beef, and lamb, but we made them with beef and turkey because turkey is cheap and pork is a no-no on the Blood Type Diet. This is a cheap and fairly easy & quick meal (except for the cleaning of the food processor).

2 lbs ground meat (beef, pork, lamb, turkey)
3/4 cup flour (spelt or brown rice)
1 onion
2 eggs
2 Tbsp starch (potato, tapioca, or arrowroot)
salt, pepper, and paprika to taste
cabbage leaves

Mix ground meat, onion, and flour in food processor until well blended. Add water to thin it out (it will be VERY stiff). Add salt & pepper, eggs, paprika, and starch. Mix with an electric mixer until combined. If mixture is still too stiff, add a little more water. It should be fairly soft.

Scoop meatballs out with a spoon that has been dipped in cold water. Put into a pot filled with water. Top with cabbage leaves. Bring to a boil, and cook for 20 minutes.
