  • 1 cup Baby spinach, chopped fine
  • 4 Garlic cloves, crushed


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly
  2. Roll into small balls

  • Definitely one for the kids. Not much to this combination, very basic. Needs a lot more to satisfy an adult palate


  • These look like a quick, easy and delicious meal that the kids will really enjoy.


  • What a great easy recipe, my little ones would love eating this.


  • this is an easy lovely recipe for kids. I make something similar with lamb called kafta that I also use in red sauces and pasta and use in skewers.a great recipe thanks for sharing


  • Great idea! Swap out the mince, beef, lamb, turkey, pork or chicken. Also swap the veggies around to keep it interesting and different


  • I love meatballs especially mixing it up with changing the mince to chicken or pork
