Spicy meatballs with rice & veggie salad
These spicy meatballs are really delicious and so easy to make. Feta cheese and jalapenos are both things I don’t eat very often, but in this dish they are perfect, I eat way too many. And the rice salad is a nice fresh alternative to a warm side dish.
Here’s how you make it;
Ingredients for meatballs:
500 g of lean minced beef
Half of a small jar of pickled jalapenos, roughly cut
A small block of feta cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper
Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well into a consistent texture. Heat a pan with olive oil and assemble small meatballs. Let them fry for a few minutes on each side and set aside
Ingredients for rice salad:
2 cups of brown rice
Half a mozzarella ball
1 red bell pepper
2 plum tomatoes
Cook the rice according to the packets directions. Use vegetable stock instead of plain water, it gives the rice a great taste.
Meanwhile, cut the vegetables and mozzarella into bite size pieces, cut the parsley roughly and put it all in a bowl. When the rice is cooked, add 3 or 4 large spoonfuls to the bowl with veggie/mozzarella and mix everything well. Lastly, drizzle a bit of olive oil on top and serve with the meatballs.
