Moroccan Lamb Meatballs

Moroccan Lamb Meatballs

Moroccan Lamb Meatballs. These lamb meatballs are simple to make and there are some fabulous spices in these flavour packed meatballs.

How many meatball recipes can I post on my blog before I have to admit I have a problem? I have listed all my meatball recipes below, check it out….. Do I have a problem?

The truth is I just love meatballs!!!! I love making them; mixing up all the wonderful flavours and squishing the meat together with my hands. Then forming them into little tiny balls of deliciousness!

Then there is how much I love eating meatballs. Especially small meatballs, the type you can pop in your mouth whole. That way you get the crisp shell and the super soft inside all together in one bite. And you can gobble up quite a few when they are small!

Another beauty of making them small and eating them whole, meaning you can serve them as a snack or canapé. Perfect for wintery nights inside by the fire, or summery nights on the deck!

Or mix them together with a sauce and make a meal.

These Moroccan Lamb meatballs are juicy, packed with flavour and light enough to enjoy as a snack. They are also great stuffed into wraps or rolls. Or you can add them to a couscous, chickpea and tomato salad (which is how Stew took the leftovers for lunch!)

Just look at them!!!! These lamb meatballs are seriously good!!! The flavour is amazing. Cinnamon, allspice, oregano, paprika, pepper, garlic the list of wonderful aromatic flavour packed ingredients gives you a hint as to how amazing these are going to taste.

So if like me you have a meatball problem, obsession, love, you should get these cooking soon. Also check out my other meatball recipes. I am also thinking of starting a recipe collection for meatballs. Watch this space!

And I also have 5 recipes for meatballs that I have cooked and was planning to put on the blog in the next couple of months.

Peel the onion and garlic and place them in a food processor, then blitz until you have an onion mush. Use a spatula to push the mixture down from the sides.

Crack in the egg and pulse mix until you have an egg mush.

Remove the crusts from the bread, rip it into small pieces and add it to the food processor.

Measure in the cinnamon, oregano, parsley, cumin, allspice, paprika, smoked paprika, black pepper and salt, then pulse chop until everything is well mixed.

Remove the blade and add the lamb mince. Use your hands to squish and squash the mixture together until it is well mixed.

If your blade can't be removed them tip everything into a bowl to mix. Don't use the food processor to mix in the meat. It chops it up too much and you end up with meatballs that have the texture of processed meat.

Once the mixture is well mixed, use two teaspoons to measure out a ball of mixture. Roll it around in your hands and then set the ball aside on a large plate.

I always aim for 36 meatballs.

Heat a small amount of oil in a heavy based frying pan. Once it is smoking hot, reduce the heat to medium and add the meatballs.

Cook for 2 minutes and then roll them all about to cook the other sides. They will take about 5 minutes in total to cook.

Yes, you can definitely leave out the bread, I quite often do as my Dad can’t eat wheat. I would leave out the egg as well as the bread as they can be a bit dense with the egg and no bread. Hope that helps

Microwave cooking and nutrition

Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?

How does microwave cooking work?

Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.

Are microwaves safe to cook?

Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.

When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.

Are microwaves bad for your health?

The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.

But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
