Most of the dishes I put together come from an idea to use an ingredient in a certain way or with a variety of other ingredients. This dish was inspired by colour. I wanted a contrast for the white beans and I thought verde (green) meatballs would be perfect.

Verde meatballs

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g minced chicken or pork, with 20 per cent fat ratio, (see recipe note)
3 tablespoons spinach powder, (see recipe note)
2 teaspoons salt
1 bunch coriander, finely chopped
2 teaspoons chilli flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon sliced pickled jalapeno
1 tablespoon olive oil

White beans

Quantity Ingredient
3 teaspoons olive oil
7 garlic cloves, sliced
2 rosemary stalks, about 15 cm long
800g tinned cannellini beans, drained
500ml chicken stock

Method

  1. To make the white beans, gently heat the oil, garlic and rosemary in a small saucepan or paella pan over a low heat for 2 minutes, or until the garlic is translucent. Stir in the beans then add the stock. Cook for 20–30 minutes, or until the mixture is thick and saucy, but the beans are still whole.
  2. To make the verde meatballs, combine all of the ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor. With the motor running, slowly add 60 ml water and process until the mixture is the consistency of a paste. Shape the mixture into balls.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Cook the meatballs for 10–12 minutes, or until cooked through.
  4. Serve the meatballs with the white beans.

Note

  • Minced chicken or pork: Ask your butcher to prepare pork or chicken mince with 20 per cent fat.

    Spinach powder: You can get spinach powder from specialty food stores.
