Lamb Meatballs with Lemon, Cumin and Mint
Mediterranean Middle East flavours at it’s finest. I love using fresh herbs when I can, especially in lamb dishes. The fresh herbs and lemon really compliment the stronger flavour profile of lamb.
I also add the quick oat flakes because they absorb the juices when the meatballs are baking and help make them soft. I have also made this dish with some finely chopped onion and it was super delicious. If you are onion fan you should add it. I like to add cooked onion vs raw, it is just my personal preference. Just throwing ideas out here.
The recipe is for one package of ground lamb which is approximately 1 pound. If you are making a larger quantity just double or triple the spice mix and ingredients.
I served this with cooked garlic zucchini noodles and a fresh salad. This also pairs well with a variety of sauces. Traditional yogurt based dipping sauces or tahini based sauces would go great.
