Meatballs are somewhat of a comfort food for me. There is just something about them that soothes my soul, but of course sometimes it’s best to have white meat for a number of health reasons. Also they make a nice change from the traditional and are quicker to make, which instantly makes them a great Ramadan recipe as you can easily whip them up for iftar.
You will need
- 250g of minced chicken
- 2 handfuls of roughly chopped spinach
- Panko Breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs
- Fresh Basil chopped up
- A pinch of dried rosemary
- 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese (optional)
- 1 Spring onion chopped into small pieces
- Garlic paste or minced garlic
Put all your ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands. Add more breadcrumbs as needed.
Shape your meatballs into the desired size one by one.
On a skillet heat up some coconut out and cook the meatballs on it until ready and browned all over. This should only take about 10-15 minutes.
Once ready you can add your sauce if yo desire or serve them as is.
Personally I like serving them without sauce on a bed of couscous or salad.
