some of you have asked me if i eat meat and the answer is yes!! we’ve always eaten red meat (lamb, beef, pork...) and lean meat (chicken and turkey) at home. it’s an excellence source of protein and provides many vitamins and minerals which our body needs to work well. the problem is when we consume too much processed meat (bacon, salami, sausages...) as they are often high in saturated f*t and salt and provide very little in the way of minerals and vitamins. ❗️i try to eat less meat but better quality ✅
this weekend was the first time i made meatballs and this has been the result!
ingredients: ✔️250g lamb mince ✔️1 garlic clove, grated✔️1 onion, chopped ✔️1 bunch of mint, chopped✔️1/2 dried thyme ✔️1/2 tbsp cumin seeds ✔️ 1 tin of diced tomatoes
make the meatballs: put the lamb mince in a mixing bowl with half the onion and half the mint. add a pinch of salt and some pepper, then mix together with your hands until well combined. shape into meatballs and place them in the oven until brown. you can also cook them in a frying pan.
for the sauce: heat a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and add the remaining onion, garlic, cumin seeds and thyme. cook, stirring until soft and pour the diced tomatoes. add a pinch of salt and pepper and simmer the sauce until thick.
add the meatballs already cooked to the sauce and serve them with couscous, rice or anything you like!
