Za’Atar Spiced Meatballs
Today I learned that it’s nearly impossible to get an appetizing photo of meatballs with a camera phone. I’m sorry. Please don’t report me to the food blogger police. I’ll try not to let it happen again.
Don’t let the less than delicious looking picture deter you, though, you MUST try this meatball recipe. It’s really yummy. Order the Za’Atar Spice blend from Savory Spice Shop, or find another blend with a similar set of spices. I paired these meatballs with couscous and sauteed green beans, and made a quick little pureed tomato and garlic sauce in the Magic Bullet to go with. It all came together super fast. I cut the recipe in half, with just half a pound of the ground lamb, and I have three meatball pyramid things left over for lunch tomorrow.
Just walking into Savory inspires me to try new things. Every time I go, I pick up a new to me spice blend to try out. Just opening all the jars of herbs and spices and blends and smelling and tasting all those interesting flavours just makes me want to live in my kitchen. That’s what I love about the world of food— I can never run out of things to learn. I can see using this spice blend for all sorts of things.
Where do you go for inspiration?
