Lamb Meatballs

These delicious lamb meatballs are bursting with spice flavours and it’s hard not to eat too many of them. They’re easy to make with ingredients that most people have in their pantry. They are free from gluten as they don’t contain breadcrumbs like most regular meatballs. You could add some almond flour if you wish to mimic regular meatballs but we find that these are so tasty just the way they are. They’re also dairy-free and paleo-friendly. Great for a yummy dinner with veggies, leftovers for lunch or kids’ lunchbox. They’re also great finger food at a get-together or for a quick snack. You can add an egg to help stick the mixture together but I don’t find it’s necessary and adding more proteins makes it harder to digest. The 500 grams of lamb mince is approximate and they worked just fine when we used a bit more meat than that. If the spice flavours are too strong for you, feel free to reduce them a little. Hope you love them as much as we do!
