Time to bake
Meatballs- chicken lamb or pork
1 medium egg, lightly beaten
handful of coriander chopped
1 tbsp pine nuts (optional)
2 tbsp of gluten free bread crumbs
freshly ground pepper
a smidgen of cardamon and cinnamon
1/8 tsp cumin and similar turmeric
1/2 cup of instant mizo soup
water to cover the meatballs
Then I leave the seasoning out completely. They are normally very good with a pasta sauce.
You can make these to fit your favorite combination of spices- ground coriander and cumin in equal amounts is another favorite with salt and pepper for the lamb version- leave out the pine nuts then. Or use dill, chopped pistachios and a bit of crumbled feta as a combination with salt and pepper for the lamb.
You can also try a chopped red chili with ruccola ( or arugula) and chopped cashew s for the pork. I even have tried a touch of ground aniseed and a touch of soy sauce for my chicken version with Asian soups.
Do not make this too complicated- combine 2 spices and one herb- not five… Next on my plan is ginger, mint, sesame and lemongrass for veal or chicken.
