A quick meatball recipe that’s our family favourite. The hidden veg is great, add more grated veg, or cook in a crushed tomato sauce
Use any mince, chicken, lamb or beef


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500g Mince
  • 1 Carrot, grated
  • Fresh herbs, chopped fine
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Baby spinach, chopped fine
  • 4 Garlic cloves, crushed

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly
  2. Roll into small balls
  3. Fry slowly until golden
  4. Serve with dipping sauce

  • I think its wise to tell kids what veggies are in things right grom the start and then they discover that some of their favorite things have veggies in them.

  • Anything you can hide veggies in is a winner.

  • We visited grandma the other day and she cooked my daughter some meatballs for lunch with a side of cucumber sticks and small tomatoes. She loved them! .. and so did I! I’ve never made any from scratch but it seems so simple and they tasted so good. So yummy they didn’t need any sauce.

  • So easy and simple to make, even to the point of remembering all the ingredients without writing them down. I will certainly make it for the whole family. Sounds delicious.

  • Sounds easy and simple and even more veg could be hidden in it to spice it up a bit as well. Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Love a hidden veg meatball. I like to use grated zucchini as well. And if you have time, jazz up your passata sauce with grated carrot, zucchini, diced mushies and capsicum then blitz it until you can’t see the veggies. Kids will never know heh

  • Seems easy enough to make and the ingredients are quite simple.
    I’d omit the garlic as I’m not a fan but everything else sounds yummy.
