Preparation

  1. Serving size: 8 meatballs
  2. Temperature: 204 °C
  1. Thaw the spinach and squeeze out any excess moisture.
  2. In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the oil.
  3. Saute the chopped onion until they are nicely caramelized, about 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, add the spinach and minced garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Let cool for a couple of minutes.
  7. Stir together the mix with the ground beef, chopped feta, dill and egg.
  8. Form balls, using about 1 tablespoon or 17 g each. I like to use a tablespoon measure for this and press in the meatball mix to start shaping it. Then I finish by rolling it in my hand briefly.
  9. Lay the meatballs on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  10. Bake for about 10 minutes, then flip them over and bake for another 5 minutes. You may want to test one meatball to check whether they are done.
  11. Enjoy warm or cold!
  12. One serving is sufficient as a main, for example served with a side of salad and tzatziki. It's also a great topping for pasta with tomato sauce, or a salad. Or serve it as an appetizer, for example as finger food by inserting a toothpicks into each meatball.
  13. Meal Prep Tip

  14. You can store the meatballs in an airtight container for 5 days in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer. For best results, thaw overnight. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven, or enjoy at room temperature.
