Spice Meatballs and Zucchini Spaghetti

Unlike most well-known meatballs, they do not carry bread. Instead, I added beans, because the combination with the meat is always good and the meatballs are softer, nutritious and tasty.

Preparation Instructions

01

Start by preparing the meatballs. In a low saucepan, place the diced tomatoes and crumble them well with a wooden spoon.

02

Then turn on the heat and add the chopped parsley, 2 cloves minced garlic, half the cumin, salt to taste and 5 tbsp olive oil. Stir until boiling (save some of the parsley for garnish).

03

After boiling, simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to undo the tomatoes. Reserve.

04

Meanwhile, in a bowl, put the drained beans and crush them well with a fork.

05

Add the minced meat, the minced onion, salt to taste, the pepper and half of the cumin, and mix with your hands until all is well connected.

06

Make small balls about 3 cm in diameter and place in a serving dish.

07

Put the meatballs in the sauce and cook over medium heat for about 6 minutes.

08

Before serving, and to garnish, sprinkle with a little chopped parsley.

09

Now prepare the courgette spaghetti. In a medium saucepan, bring boiling water with a little salt.

10

Peel the courgettes (if you want the white spaghetti, remove the shell completely). Cut them in half and then cut the ends.

11

Put in boiling water and bake for a maximum of 3 min. Remove, drain well and spiral to a serving dish. Wrap with olive oil and serve with the meatballs.

All ingredients in the recipe are gluten free. Suitable for celiac.
