Hello friends,

Driving home from work at 9am, I had an overwhelming desire for meat balls – don’t ask me why or how but I grabbed all the ingredients and this is how it rolled.  By the way this is a super affordable recipe and super easy.

Sauce –

  • In a large saucepan heat the oil on a medium heat
  • Add the onion, garlic and coriander stalks
  • Allow the onions and garlic to soften before adding the chopped capers
  • Add the can of tomatoes and passata + seasoning
  • Allow to simmer

Meat Balls –

  • In a bowl combine the mince, mustard, yolk, paprika, thyme, onion and garlic
  • Use your hands to combine all the ingredients thoroughly
  • Heat some butter/coconut oil in a fry pan.
  • Roll the mince into 5 or 6 large meatballs (feel free to make lots of smaller ones)
  • Add the meat balls to the pan and brown off the meat
  • Once completely browned place into the tomato sauce
  • Cook for a further 8 minutes

Zucchini Spaghetti –

  • Run your zucchini over a mandolin or julienne using your knife
  • Add to salted hot water for 30-60 sec
  • Remove from the heat and drain

 

  • Combine the zucchini spaghetti, ragu and meat balls, season and enjoy
