Clean Eating Basil Spinach Meatballs over Sweet Potato Spirals

I saw these spirals recently but they were steamed. I decided to try them pan fried with avocado oil instead. I thought the texture would be better and the hot heat would slightly brown them and bring out the sweetness. I was right. They were perfect. A huge hit with my husband.
