Happy Wednesday! Today I'm sharing another healthy living recipe from the kitchen diaries. A fun and easy way to make a delicious zucchini meatball sandwich. Ready all about it below and treat your tummy to a delicious treat. This can take about 30 minutes, so not to long and it's worth the wait.
Let's get started...
1/2 grated onion, 3 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, 1 grated zucchini
2 tablespoons tomato paste, 2 small eggs or 1 large egg
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Once the zucchini has been grated, use your hands to squish and get rid of excess water. Put the zucchini in a bowl and throw a dash of salt and pepper.
Mix the onions, zucchini, parsley and garlic. Add 3/4 cup breadcrumbs.
Add your 1 lbs of beef and mix well using your hands. Keep needing at it until everything is full mixed together and no excess ingredients are remaining.
Once it's been mixed you can roll into small meatballs using your hands. Place on a plate each time you complete a meatball.
Place the meatballs in a pot, make sure to oil the bottom to prevent from burning or sticking. Cook until browned to ensure the inside is fully cooked.
Throw in your 4 cups of marinara sauced and cook for another 10 mins.
This should serve up to 4 baguettes. Slice the middle of the baguette and place the meatballs inside. Then sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese on top or have as is.
I decided to forgo the mozzarella cheese on top for a healthier option, and since I'd already thrown some cheese into the mix when cooking the meatballs. With my focus lately being on expanding my culinary skills and eating healthier. I've decided to share some of the recipes I've been putting together.
Thanks for reading and enjoy!
