2. Add 1/2 Cup Water and 2 tsp Cinnamon. Apples are sweet fruits so you don’t need that much sugar to add. I just add 2 tbsp of Agave Syrup. Simmer for about 20 min on Medium heat.

Italian Meatballs with Oven roasted Potato

Standard

Yesterday I got home early and I was not in a mood of going to my books straight, So I though why not to just have some fun in the kitchen! And out come was very¬†satisfying¬†plus it made my husband happy too ūüėČ

So here is what you need:

  • Ground beef ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 250 g
  • Potato ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 6 medium size
  • Quick Oatmeal ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 1 cup
  • Onion (Finely chopped) ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†1 large
  • Red chard(Chopped) ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 1 bunch
  • Mushroom (Chopped) ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†6-7
  • dry Oregano ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 1 ¬†and 1/2 tbsp
  • dry¬†rosemary ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†2 ¬† tbsp
  • Garlic (minced) ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†2 cloves
  • Tomato Paste ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 4-5 tbsp
  • Parsley (chopped) ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†1/2 cup
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 400 F.

Marinate the potatoes in a large bowl with olive oil, 1 1/2 tbsp of dry rosemary, salt and pepper. ¬†Poke your beautiful potatoes in few spots with a fork, and Put them on a backing sheet. Place them in pre-heated oven for about 40 min. While they are getting roasted and yummy lets start making your meatballs ūüôā

In a large bowl mix ground beef, Onion, Quick oat meal, dry oregano and only 1/2 tbsp of rosemary, and salt & pepper. Give it a good massage and here is the fun begins ūüôā Form the mixture into little cute meatballs about a size of a walnut (2¬†cm¬†diameter ). Warm your frying pan and use a bit of olive oil on medium heat and start to¬†saut√© your meatballs, just be gentle with them when you are turning them over, because we want them to keep their shapes.¬†Saut√©¬†until¬†their colour is little bit brown.¬† In another Pan mix the tomato paste, minced garlic, chopped¬†parsley with some water ( about one and half cup), and transfer your cutie meatballs into the sauce, cover and cook for about 10 to 15 mins or until they are cooked.

Now we need to bring on our veggies, In the picture that I have for¬†completed¬†dish you don’t see the veggies ūüė¶ Because when I served the dishes we were so hungry that actually I forgot to take a pic so I just placed some colourful chards leaves beside my meatballs. But I am glad I took a pic while they were still in the pan. I promise next time I make them, I will¬†definitely¬†take a proper pic and post it here. I¬†apologize¬†for being not perfect ūüėČ

So in a frying pan that we used initially; saut√© the mushrooms and chopped chard leaves, and some salt a& pepper to taste. We need this veggie to place it under the meatballs when we serve them. Don’t forget your potatoes in Oven! So you can place it beside your meatball to just add some Yummy Carbs.
