Through no conscious decision, perhaps more a subconscious nod to being more sustainable in my eating habits, I don’t eat meat on that regular a basis these days, however on occasion I do just have that hankering for something ravishingly red meat centric.
Now in honour of our environment and those animals that we will be consuming I will only ever purchase and suggest others purchase organic, grass fed animal products.
Not only does this ensure a higher welfare standard for those animals whilst they are alive, but as a consequence the nutritional profile we receive is entirely different to intensively raised livestock.
Those natural farming habits are also less damaging to our world.
Now with all that said and done it’s on to these divine little baked beauties! Packed with herbs, fresh lemon and more, they are the perfect light version of a meatball to be enjoyed on a warm summer’s evening.
I have chosen to pair them here with a celeriac mash and greens but should your mind be focused on pasta then by all means honour that calling!
