Hey guys, how about this simple and flavor-full recipe to kickstart your week!
This week I’ve decided to highlight one of my all time favourite Bio products, their cooking cream. Now those who have been following my blog for a while now (my old blogspot.com one), would have already seen a pic of this cream because I have literally been using it for years, ever since I moved back from Spain.
I was constantly disappointed by most of the other creams in the market since I would get home, open them up and find they had already curdled (And mind you those creams were not cheap!) It happened so many times that by the time I found this one, I was almost ready to give up on any recipes that required cream. Good thing Bio’s cream is specifically made for one thing, cooking! The other cool thing is that it isn’t stored in the fridge in most supermarkets. You buy it, its all thick and fresh, and then you store it in the fridge after.
Now about this recipe. I wanted to blend a few Moroccan flavours together. Lamb or goat meat work perfectly in this. That mixed with feta and various herbs, and not forgetting the cooking cream that makes the meatballs so moist and juicy on the inside. It’s easy, just like any other recipes we make on this blog and I hope you will love it as much as you have loved the previous Bio recipes this month.
Also shout out to everyone who have been giving me FEEDback on the other recipes by sending me their pics and messages. Nothing gives me more joy than seeing you guys trying these recipes out. THEY WORK! They really do! And there is plenty more coming your way this year.
So todays recipe is simple and as follows.
- 1/2 cup Bio Cooking cream
- 800 grams minced Lamb/ Goat meat
- 4 diced cloves of garlic
- 1/2 cup crumbled or chopped feta cheese
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- Mixed dried herbs
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Start by pre-heating your oven to 180 degrees.
- Follow by mixing the meat with the garlic, cheese, egg, breadcrumbs, cooking cream, salt and spices. Use your hands to mix everything well.
- Roll the meat into small meat balls and place on a greased baking tray.
- Put in the oven to cook for 20 minutes.
- In the meantime, mix the soy sauce and honey together. Remove the meatballs from the oven and pour the mixture over each one, then return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
- Once they are ready, remove and serve on a platter with wraps/buttered nans and a salad.
- Fresh herbs work even better in this.
