What to serve with lamb meatballs
I like to serve this with spicy couscous and I cheat here – I use Ainsley Harriot couscous sachets – the Spice Sensation or the Moroccan Medley couscous work best with this recipe. I usually stir roasted peppers through the couscous and scatter over chopped coriander and flat leaf parsley – just to give it a bit of extra yumminess!
I add a bowl of minty yogurt sauce on the side – to make this simply mix Greek yogurt with a couple of teaspoons of mint sauce. Simple!
Don’t just stick to my ideas though – mix things up for yourself – try…
- Flavoured rice – the Tilda microwave pouches are a quick option.
- Stuff the meatballs into pitta breads with salad and minty yogurt or mango chutney
- Serve with quinoa and roast veggies
- Serve the meatballs in a thick, rich tomato sauce with pasta or rice. You might just LOVE our Moroccan meatball sauce recipe here.
