My Second-Favorite Meatball

Probably not traditionally Moroccan, but this is how I imagine a kitchen in Casablanca to smell. Most people will get 6-8 servings from this recipe... but you haven't seen me eat meatballs! I also know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but it is so easy!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Mix first 12 ingredients very well. Form these into your meatballs, about the size of a Tablespoon. Brown in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile -- While they are baking, heat the oil in a saute pan. Cook onions until soft, add garlic and spices and cook 1 more minute (until you can smell them!).
  3. Add the tomatoes, bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15 minutes, covered but stirring often.
  4. Your meatballs are done in the oven, so remove them and carefully add them to the tomatoes. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
  5. Garnish with fresh herbs like parsley, mint or coriander.

Had to leave out the cardamom because the unnamed bone headed person in my house I sent to the grocery store (husband) came back with coriander. THAT little episode aside, these was a terrific recipe. They were good hot and room temperature. A nice change.
