In another attempt to get veggies into my toddler I’ve made meatballs with approximately 1/3 grated veggies, 1/3 mince beef, and 1/3 mince turkey.
I’ve made these before with different veggies but this combo seems particularly tasty.
Here’s what I used:
2 medium zucchini (grated)
2 medium onion (grated)
6 asparagus stalks (chopped finely)
1 medium sweet potato (peeled then grated)
1 small apple (grated, inc peel)
3 cloves garlic (chopped finely)
Approx 700gm each of beef and turkey mince
1/2 – 1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 – 1 cup Parmesan cheese (finely grated)
Splash of Worcestershire sauce
Generous splash of sweet chili sauce
Mix it all up.
Roll into balls.
Fry in minimal oil. (I used grapeseed).
I served them with egg noodles tossed in olive oil and fresh basil.
Yum! Toddler and parents all enjoyed these! And there were tons left over to freeze for future meals.
