Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 200C (fan oven).

Mix all of the ingredients together - it's best to do this with your hands to make sure everything gets really well combined.

Form balls out of the mixture, about an inch and a half diameter.

Place the meatballs on a baking tray

Bake the meatballs for about 20 minutes or until golden and cooked all of the way through.

I didn't make a sauce to go with the meatballs but it would be really easy to make a nice tomato sauce with coriander, cumin, garlic and red onion or you could serve with seasoned cous cous, a bulgar wheat salad or just on their own as a starter of canapé.
