I love to play around and ‘secretly’ add some veggies into well, everything!! This yummy meatball mixture are literally half vegetables so they are a perfect way to add in some extra serves of vitamins (especially for the kids or partner that rolls their eyes at the look of anything healthy haha!) Super easy, super quick, organic, healthy and WAY more than enough to meal prep for every lunch this week!
500g organic, free range chicken mince2 large carrots, grated
2 zucchinis, grated
1/2 to 1 whole red onion, chopped finely
1 tspn garlic
1 large tin diced tomatoes
Handful of fresh basil, chopped
Chilli flakes to taste
Mix all meatball ingredients together by hand
Roll into small balls and cook in a frypan (I used a tablespoon of coconut oil)
NOTE – If you have time, Mum says they stick together better if you roll them into balls and cool them in the fridge for a few hours. You can also add a sprinkle of coconut flour or oat flour if you find they aren’t sticking together well
Once cooked, put into a dish and top with diced tomatoes. Mix through basil leaves & chilli flakes
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes
I split mine into containers for my lunches for the week and serve as pictured above on a bed of organic baby spinach, some bakes sweet potato and turmeric & garlic sauerkraut. You can serve however you like, some brown rice & quinoa would be a yummy dinner with baby spinach wilted through!
