These little beauties are definitely a family favourite. Meet my Zesty Meatballs. This recipe was inspired by a Jamie Oliver spaghetti and meatball recipe my Mum found years ago. He added lemon zest to the mixture and this added an incredible burst of flavour to the meatballs. My little meatballs are gluten free, paleo friendly and full of yummy flavours. You can eat them with some homemade tomato sauce or relish, with vegetables for dinner, or you can add them to Spaghetti Napolitano to create your own spaghetti and meatballs. They’re also a yummy snack all on their own, hot or cold, if you feel like a protein boost.
These days I always make my own meatballs. I like knowing exactly what’s in them. I’m a strong believer that if you use great ingredients and make your food with love and care you will always end up with a tastier dish. These Zesty Meatballs are really quick and easy to whip up and they use ingredients that you’ll probably have in your fridge and pantry every week.
I like to serve these with lots of steamed organic vegetables, either rice or dairy free mashed potato, and a fresh wedge of lemon on the side. It’s a quick and easy meal for the whole family.
Serves 4 – makes 16 small meatballs
For all of my Thermomix fellow owners, I cook my white rice and steamed vegetables in the basket for a quick and easy accompaniment to my meatballs. I add half a cup of white rice, dice 4 medium carrots and cut up a small broccoli head. This fits nicely into the basket. I cook all of this on Varoma temperature for 15 minutes on speed 4. This amount of food serves myself, my husband and my two small boys. If you’re feeding a larger family, I would add 1 cup of rice and cook more vegetables in the Varoma basket on top. Happy cooking!

I’m a massive fan of home made almond milk. It tastes great and it’s so simple to make with just two ingredients! It wins hands down in any competition against the store bought varieties of almond milk. It contains a greater proportion of almonds to water, it has no nasty additives, preservatives or thickeners, and …
