I bought some quality lamb meat (grounded) yesterday and made meatballs out of it just now to have a decent meal after my FIRST SKIING IN 11 YEARS!! Woohoo! Big hand for Da Mule! Awesome. Cheers, Fedo for taking me. (Despite the fun the trip had a slight aftertaste thanks to a HKL bus driver having not the best of days… Well, first time Ive heard a city employee call someone an asshole [kusipää in plain Finnish], mark on the wall.)
Anyway, I would’ve just normally cook the meat on a pan but I wanted to make it easy to freeze in a meal size portions so burgers or meatballs it was gonna be. And I just felt a bit more… meatballsy than burgerish. Got a chance to try something new as well since I wanted to use my arame seaweed. Worked okay in the balls, didn’t bring any significant difference in the taste. Maybe could be enhanced by seasoning the balls with some wasabi, soy sauce and ginger. Next time then!
Meatballs with Seaweed
- half a kilo grounded lamb meat
- a generous handful of dried arame
- an organic egg
- paprika, oregano, salt, pepper
Soak the seaweed in cold water for fifteen minutes, then prepare the dough. Form balls the size that suits you best (I tend to aim for Nigella-like small ones but always lack the patience) and bake in the oven until done. Approx. 220 degrees, 25 minutes. Add to the salad and freeze some to grab later!
Salad (everything preferrably organic)
- bell pepper
- fresh coriander
- left over veggies from yesterday’s thai dish
- turmeric, a bit of balsamic vinegar (on of my few vices left that aren’t really paleo), goji berries, salt, pepper
Prepare! I quite often cook come chopped eggplant and bell pepper (or carrots/other root veggies) in the microwave for a couple of minutes to get something that is warm and a bit cooked, then I add a huge load of fresh vegetables. But it’s up to you how you want to have them. Steamed, boiled, fried, grated… Or just plain raw which works for me too. I just like the different texture in the weeny bit cooked ones mixing with all the raw.
Well, this is just another example how to put a salad together, you can do it anyway you like. As long as you JUST DO IT! Again. Faster. Crossfithelsinki.com –>
