healthy_eatingThis healthy eating recipe feels indulgent and creamy but is in fact packed with healthy spices, yoghurt and fruit.
These meatballs can be eaten on their own, with a salad, in a wrap, or even with some spaghetti. They also reheat well the next day for a healthy eating snack.
Baking the meatballs on top of a wire rack means that you don’t need to use any oil, and any excess fat from the meat can drain away.
Optional extras for the meatballs:

  • Throw in some crumbled feta
  • Add crushed pistachios
  • Finely slice a small red chilli to add some heat
  • Swap the sultanas for some chopped dates


For the meatballs:

  • 400g lean minced lamb
  • 1 small onion, peeled and very finely diced
  • 4 tbsp sultanas
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the sauce:

  • ½ cup mint
  • ½ cup dill, parsley or coriander
  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Juice and zest of ½ a lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 180C and line 2 trays with baking paper. If you have them, place some wire racks on top so that any fat can drain away.
  • Prepare the meatballs by placing all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with your hands.
  • Use wet hands to shape the mixture into around 20-30 balls and place on the lined trays.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning once, until the centres are no longer pink.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  • Pour the sauce over the cooked meatballs to serve.
