These delicious meatballs have veggies right inside them!

The added texture and moisture from the veggies makes the meatballs tastier, and better for you. You can change the flavour and reduce food waste by including leftover different veggies, bread and even nut, and cheese varieties.

  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 tbsp. Leafy herbs

  • Chop the mushrooms (including stems) and herbs into small pieces. Set aside.

  • Form balls with the mixture and place onto a lined baking sheet.
