Golden beef balls with pumpkin, potato and herbs (low FODMAP, gluten free)

Posted on Updated on

We had a few friends over for drinks including Bill. Bill is highly sensitive to many food. He has a diet that is low FODMAP + gluten free + no additives + no quirks. I found cooking for Bill challenging, as he gets sick for days if he eats the wrong food. Here are some delicious beef balls that  I cooked for Bill and to share with friends.  So simple and nutritious.
