Pork & Chive Meatballs with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

These are a simple and delicious idea to make for the pre xmas lunch hunger.. these are oven baked meatballs so all you need to do is mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, roll into balls and pop in the oven to bake! They are also delicious in a salad – I ate all of these within 2 days!!

  2. Chop spinach and shallots
  3. In a large bowl, combine pork mince, chopped spinach, shallots, garlic oil, egg, almond meal and salt
  4. Using a tablespoon, spoon out mixture and roll into meatballs and put on the lined baking tray
  5. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for about 30 mins, turning over once
  6. Whilst meatballs are in the oven, prepare your yogurt dressing by combining the above ingredients in a small bowl
