1/2 a broccoli head
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
500g of chicken mince
1 tablespoon of tamari
1 sprinkle of black pepper
3-4 large courgettes
Lemon juice (optional)
– Preheat the oven to 220 deg C/425 deg F.
– Finely dice the onion, and broccoli. (For the broccoli, you may want to cut around the green part, then grate or finely chop the stalk part).
– Add coconut oil to a frying pan on medium heat, then sauté the broccoli and onion mixture.
– Add in the crushed garlic, and cook for another few minutes until broccoli is soft. Set aside the cooked ingredients to cool.
– In a mixing bowl, place the chicken mince, tamari, pepper, and egg, and combine well. Once the broccoli and onion mix is cool, add it to the chicken mince and mix well. Roll into small balls, and place evenly on an oven tray.
– Bake in the oven for approx. 20 mins, until cooked through. Turn occasionally to ensure even cooking.
– Whilst the chicken balls are cooking, wash the courgettes, remove the ends, and slice thinly length ways using either a mandolin slicer or peeling stripes away with a peeler. Steam for 3-4 minutes, then place on a plate or bowl. Add the cooked meatballs on top of the courgette, and season with lemon juice and coriander.
To boost the nutrients, you can also add in some grated carrot, or veggies, or offer a healthy home made sauce to go with it.
