Equipment

  • Thermomix (optional)
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 500 g lamb mince
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (125g) breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbs oregano
  • salt and pepper to season
  • olive oil spray
  • 4 pita breads
  • 1 X 175g couscous packet San Remo microwave packet
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cucumber chopped
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • 80 g feta cheese crumbled
  • tzatziki dip to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Grease a 24 hole mini muffin tin with olive oil spray and set aside (if you don't have a mini muffin tray you can use a flat baking tray). 
  • Place the mince, breadcrumbs, garlic, egg, oregano, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix until well combined. If using a Thermomix, mix on Reverse Speed 5 for 20 seconds or until well combined (using the spatula to help mix). 
  • Roll into balls and place into the prepared tin (one meatball in each mini muffin hole). 
  • Cook for 15 minutes or until cooked through. 
  • Meanwhile, place the San Remo microwave couscous in the microwave for 60 seconds. 
  • To serve, place the pita breads onto 4 serving plates. Top with the couscous, red onion, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, meatballs, feta and tzatziki dip.

Notes

It's not essential to use a mini muffin tin to cook the meatballs but it's a handy way to keep them separated and in shape.
