Who is Primal Kitchen + Why Do I Use Them?

So, if you’ve ever visited my website’s shop page, then you’re aware that I love Primal Kitchen and they’re actually one of my favorite food staples.

Why Primal Kitchen’s Olive Oil + Vodka Sauce?

When it comes to spaghetti + meatballs, traditionally Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the base of the sauce since you begin by sautéing things like garlic, onions, etc. However, Primal Kitchen Vodka Sauce isn’t usually a part of the equation. 

Usually, this dish is made out of tomato sauce as opposed to vodka sauce, but I promise that you’ll love this. 

PK’s Vodka Sauce is made entirely dairy-free. It’s made from avocado oil and organic cashew butter, so that you aren’t ditching taste which is important. In addition, this sauce is made without gluten, soy, canola oil, or artificial ingredients.

Meanwhile, their Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Whole30 Approved, Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and Certified Organic. It’s just all around premium and high-quality.

Homemade Meatballs vs. Store-bought!

I’m hardly one who leans towards store-bought frozen versions of food, especially when it comes to vegetarian and vegan options.

However, I love making my own meatballs. For most of my meatball dishes, I use quinoa and chickpeas. I know. It sounds a bit crazy since most people like to use zucchini or mushrooms or something else, but I find using both ingredients super easy.

When making my meatballs from scratch, I often love using quinoa and chickpea. From time to time, I’ll use black beans or another veggie, but these Vegan Chickpea + Quinoa ‘Meatballs’  are my go-to!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsps Primal Kitchen Extra Virgin Olive Oil (See Notes!)
  • 1 (24 oz.) bottle Primal Kitchen No Dairy Vodka Sauce (See Notes!)
  • 1 (12 oz.) pack spaghetti, use GF if desired!
  • 1 bag Vegan Meatless Meatballs (For Homemade, See Notes!)
  • 2-3 Tbsps vegan butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • sea salt + black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

Instructions

  • To begin, cook spaghetti according to packaging, drain, and set aside. **TIP: after draining my pasta, I often rinse with cold water to prevent pasta from sticking.**
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter until melted. Now, add the vegan meatballs and sear on the sides, turning them every 2 minutes or so. Continue to cook them until fully browned and cooked through.
  • Once done, remove meatballs from the skillet onto a plate and using the same skillet, add another Tbsp of butter and let it melt. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, parsley, oregano, smoked paprika, and salt + pepper, stirring until combined.
  • Next, add in vodka sauce and let sauce boil slightly, about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the meatballs and cooked spaghetti and toss until fully coated, cooking it for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Bon Appetit!
