Simple meatballs

I have been a little lazy on the blog lately, running around organising work for Minnd and creating new recipes in my head. (not paper!)

Here is a lovely simple recipe I made last night luckily I had some steamed broccoli and quinoa to finish this dish for my vegetarian friend who dropped by just as cooking was wrapping up (great timing anita)

Simple beef meatballs with spicy tomato Sauce

500g organic or pasture fed beef mince
1 t cinnamon
1 t cumin
1 t coriander
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs or packed (I like to use organic rice breadcrumbs or demeter farms sourdough breadcrumbs available at always organics in brookvale)
1 Jar tomato puree
1 can diced tomatoes
1 t harissa paste
sea salt and pepper to season
1 sprig rosemary

Make the tomato sauce first putting tomato ingredients into a small saucepan with harissa, rosemary and simmer for 15 minutes.

Use your hands and work through spices with beef and breadcrumbs
Roll the beef mince into small balls about the size of a 50 cent coin
Bake in oven on a baking tray for 15 minutes on 170 degrees.

Spoon tomato mixture over meatballs and serve in a bowl, steam some broccoli and if you feel like add some cooked quinoa for more protein.
