  • For the meatballs:
  • 1/2kg beef mince meat
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 gloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano 
  • 4 tbsp oat flour
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley 
  • pinch of salt and pepper 
  • For the pesto:
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1 tsp soya sauce 
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Start by mixing the meatball ingredients until well combined and use your hands to form into balls (about 3cm each). Grease a baking sheet with olive oil and bake the meatballs for approximately 25 minutes – until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Prepare pesto by blending in a food processor until all the ingredients are combined but still has texture. Then spiralize 3 large zucchini and cook in a pan on medium heat until soft. Toss with pesto, divide into 3 bowls and top with the meatballs. Enjoy!
