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


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

  • This is a delicious sounding recipe, and so easy as well. There’s nothing like hiding a few healthy vegetables in some sort of mince.


  • Thanks for sharing must try this recipe


  • This is such a good easy and yummy recipe, if you want to add beg you could even mix through grated zucchini.


  • Hidden veggies are just great. I like them.


  • A nice little recipe!


  • I make these for my toddler, great way to increase his veggie intake


  • we love meat balls in our house, we serve them over spaghetti though


  • Sound good a nice staple thanks


  • You could probably add other vegetables to these provided they can be grated or very finely chopped.


  • Oh these look healthy and simple


  • love it – love the hidden veg, would be great added to a salad for my lunch box too – thank you for your recipe :)


  • You can’t go wrong with meat balls


  • Meatballs are always so marvellous and yummy for hungry tummies.

    • Adding extra vegetables is always terrific and a good way to use up vegetables.


  • Yummy! I agree with others ideas id add in grateful veggies too


  • I love how easy these seem but I would add even more veggies. I would add zucchini or even sweet potato. Delish!
