Cauliflower and Meatballs Ragout

I have added cinnamon to this ragout, which creates an unforgettable flavour. The meatballs are moist, and the vegetables are simmered in a mouthwatering sauce to perfection. When you are craving comfort food on a light note, this ragout will satisfy that craving, and it can be made in less than 45 minutes

 

Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef or lamb
1 cup grated zucchini (1 small zucchini)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. Himalayan pink salt
1 Tbsp. coconut oil or butter
2 cups finely diced white onion
3 cups gluten free beef broth
2 Tbsp. pure tomato paste
3 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
2 small turnips, peeled and quartered
1 medium head cauliflower, cored and cut into small florets
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
