Every week, Luke and I sit down to plan what meals we would like to eat for the week. We choose a few to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And this week, Luke had a request for meatballs! Yummy! I didn’t have a recipe for meatballs, so went on the search for one – and there were heaps on good ol’ Google. However, most of them had bread included in the recipes, and I didn’t really want to include that as an ingredient.nSo, the recipe below is slightly modified from a traditional meatball recipe – but still just as yummy! Homemade MeatballsnIngredients: 1kg lean beef mincen1 x zucchini, gratedn1 x carrot, gratedn1 x brown onion, finely choppedn3 tbsp. parmesan cheese, gratedn800g crushed tomatoesnBasil, salt and pepper Method: Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease a baking dish.nMix mince, zucchini, carrot, onion and cheese in a large bowl. Roll 1 tbsp. of mixture into a ball and place into the baking dish. Repeat until the entire mixture is used up. Coat the balls with tomato and a sprinkle of basil, salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for at least 30 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. Serve with vegetables, or a salad, or they’re the perfect addition to pasta as a post-workout meal.
