Delicious gluten free meatball sub with cheese

You will need

For the Flatbread:

Grain-Free Pastry

1 pack of defrosted gluten-free pastry

For the meatballs

1 pack of Primal Cut meatballs

For the tomato sauce

2 teaspoons of coconut oil (or oil of your choice)

4 cloves of garlic

2 tins of chopped tomatoes

1 cup of coconut cream

2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning

fresh ground black pepper and sea salt

To make a grain-free meatball sub

Cut the pastry square in two and roll out to form flatbreads. Place to one side

Fry the meatballs in a frying pan to take on colour on each side. Remove from the pan and set to one side

Add a little more oil to the frying pan and gently fry the garlic until the fragrance is released.

Add the chopped tomatoes, coconut cream and herbs and season well

Bring to the boil and turn the heat down to simmer for 5 - 10 minutes, until the sauce, begins to thicken

Add in the meatballs and cover the pan with a lid. Cook for a further 10 - 15 minutes, keep lifting the lid and stirring

While this is cooking, place the flatbread dough shape into a warm, dry frying pan

Warm gently until cooked through. Cut each flatbread in half to create two semi-circles

Load the meatballs and sauce onto one semi-circle. Sprinkle cheese on the meatballs and sauce

Top with the remaining semi-circle of flatbread.
