Turkey Lemon Meatballs

I love meatballs. I love them because they can be any one of a billion flavour combinations, and because they can be made with any type of mince you happen to have in the freezer. Also they’re equally as good cold in your lunchbox as they are for dinner the night before. So maybe think about making double…

Serves about 2 (hungry) people
400g turkey mince
1/2 a preserved lemon, or the zest and juice of a fresh one
2 garlic cloves
1/2 an onion
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Salt & pepper

Stick everything apart from the meat in your food processor and blend until everything is finely diced (or chop everything by hand if you don’t have anything to blend with). Mix this into the turkey until well blended, and shape into even sized meatballs.

The mix for this is quite wet and sticky, so I’d recommend oven cooking rather than frying or you’re likely to have quite a lot of breakage! So place in an ovenproof dish and cook at 180c for about 30 minutes (may be more or less depending on the size of your meatballs…)

We ate these with veg, roasted kohlrabi and some garlic mayo.
