Mint & feta lamb meatballs – with or without a Thermomix

A Greek-inspired recipe for you today: lamb, feta and mint meatballs – a mouthful of flavour in every bite.

Juicy and very tasty, the mint, garlic, and parsley complete perfectly the lamb.

I serve them with pitta bread, houmous, fresh mint, sliced tomatoes, greek yogurt, crumbled feta, and tzatziki. But they’d be equally as good served with rice, pasta or a salad.
