This is a little more time-consuming, but great as a weekend feel-good meal. Super-filling and flavoursome.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g minced turkey
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs
1 teaspoon grated parmesan
1/4 courgette, grated, plus 1 courgette, sliced
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 small sweet potato, cut into wedges
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for the sweet potatoes
180ml chicken stock

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Place the turkey, egg, mixed herbs, Parmesan and grated courgette into a bowl, with a good pinch of salt and some pepper. Mix well, then roll into meatballs about 2.5 cm in size. Place on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes. This gives you a little more firmness to work with.
  3. Place the sweet potato wedges on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt, mix well and bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the sweet potato is soft, the edges are crisp and golden. Make sure you turn them often.
  4. In a pan with a lid, fry the meatballs in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil for about seven minutes, turning often, until they begin to turn a golden brown.
  5. Add two-thirds of the chicken stock, cover and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add the remaining liquid and cook, uncovered, until all the liquid has gone.
  6. When they are nearly ready, sauté the sliced courgette in the remaining oil with plenty of sea salt and black pepper, until the courgette is soft.
