Chef’s Tips:

  • Meatballs do not need breadcrumbs to bind, but they do require a little care when handling. Here, I simply bake them, so they have no chance of falling apart.
  • Don’t skip on the different herbs called for in the mince mixture – it will ensure every mouthful of each meatball is bursting with interesting flavors!

Ingredients

  • 14.1 oz ground beef (we use Butcher Box meat)
  • Handful chives, finely chopped (plus extra to garnish)
  • Handful dill, finely chopped (plus extra to garnish)
  • Handful parsley, finely chopped (plus extra to garnish)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 TB olive oil, plus an extra 1 TB for dressing drizzle
  • 2.8 oz green beans
  • 3.5 oz petit pois, defrosted if using frozen
  • 2.8 oz baby spinach, thinly sliced
  • 2.8 oz arugula, thinly sliced
  • 1.8 oz feta, crumbled
  • 0.7 oz pistachio nuts, roughly chopped
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
    2. Add the ground beef into a bowl and then add the chives, dill, parsley, and garlic powder. Season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix thoroughly to evenly combine.
    3. Form 10 even-sized meatballs from the mixture and place them onto a baking tray lined with kitchen paper.
    4. Drizzle over a tablespoon of olive oil and bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes until cooked through.
    5. In the meantime, trim the green beans and cook in a saucepan of rapidly boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain and plunge into a bowl of cold water to cool completely. Drain again.
    6. Toss the green beans, petit pois, baby spinach, and arugula in a bowl and another tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt.
    7. Serve the meatballs over the greens and crumble the feta cheese over them.
    8. Finish with the pistachios and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Toss on any remaining herbs.
