Paleo Meatballs, lunch

I made a few changes to this Meatball recipe from Paleo Pot for lunch today:

Finely grated zucchini, squeezed!
1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground black pepper

Form into meatballs

4 c loose baby spinach
1/2 c sunflower seeds

Layer half in the bottom of the crockpot, the add layer of meatballs

1/2 jar marinara sauce

Cover in marinara sauce.

Layer remaining spinach and sunflower seeds, cook for 4 hours on slow cooker setting.  Nice to use my rice cooker for something else. Prepped this in the am, didn't take too long at all.

Taste notes: Tasty, but it is good to note that the meatball did not have a very meatball-y texture at all.  This is probably due to the fact that I may have not put enough binding agent into the meatball mixture.  The way the spinach melted into the meatballs gave a dolma type experience.
