Top Review by evelynathens

These were tasty little treats. I was skeptical of the zucchini in the meatballs but it baked into a light morsel. The sauce was marvellous - very fresh-tasting, and delicious with the meatballs. We made pita wraps out of this recipe, adding sliced tomato, for a delicious lunch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. grate the zucchini and squeeze out the moisture. add all the other ingredients and mix together with your hands. the consistency should be quite firm – add more breadcrumbs if needed.
  2. shape into mini burgers taking a small handful at a time or use a heaped teaspoon of the mixture and roll into balls.
  3. put on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven at 180C for 20 minutes until browned. serve with mint sauce.
  4. makes 35 meatballs or 12 mini burgers.
  5. the mint sauce: mash together 1 clove of garlic and a small handful of mint leaves to a paste in a pestle. add the juice of one lemon and mash some more. mix in 3/4 of a cup of thick natural yoghurt and add salt and pepper to taste.
