How to Chop Herbs

Method

1. Combine the mince, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, mint, lemon zest and oregano. Roll the mixture into small, walnut-sized balls.

2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the meatballs over a high heat until they are golden brown. Reduce the heat to low and cook for a further 4-5 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through.

3. While the meatballs are cooking, place the pasta sauce into a small saucepan and warm over a low heat.

4. To make the Tzatziki dressing: place grated cucumber in paper towel to squeeze out any excess moisture, then add to bowl with yoghurt. Mix well.

5. Serve the meatballs with risoni, pasta sauce, salad and a dollop of tzatziki.
