Spiced Meatball Wrap

This was a really yummy dinner and a great alternative to tacos or burgers. It's also pretty healthy because the meat is baked not panfried and you can serve it with as much salad as you can squeeze into a wrap.

Spiced Meatball Wrap

500g pork mince
500g lamb mince
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 ts ground cummin
1ts ground coriander
1 1/2ts garam masala
2 tbs rolled oats
1 egg, lightly beaten
1tbs plain yoghurt

1 ripe avocado
2 tbs plain yoghurt
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
handful of fresh coriander stems, chopped finely

To serve:
Any other salad greens you like

Preheat oven to 220 deg C.

Place all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to combine. I find you get a better result using your hands as it tends to turn to mush in a food processor.

Using wet hands, shape into golfball sized meatballs. You should get 12 meatballs from this mix which will easily feed 6 people. Place on a non-stick baking tray. Do this a few hours ahead of time if you can as the flavours will develop, then store in the fridge until you are ready to cook.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through but still juicy.

Meanwhile, make the sauce by mashing the avocado and combining with other ingredients. This is basically a version of guacamole but it contrasts perfectly with the aromatics in the meatballs.

Serve with freshly chopped tomato and capsicum in a flatbread wrap with plenty of sauce.

Serves 6. Delicious!
