I had the idea to develop a lunchbox meatball Thermomix recipe with “hidden” vegetables for all the kids returning back to school over the coming weeks…
so I googled “most nutritious vegetable” and of course Kale came up. I really don’t enjoy eating kale personally, I just think there are other foods out there which taste much nicer. These meatballs taste fantastic, because the parmesan cheese hides the kale taste wonderfully – it does not however hide the colour! If your kids love the colour green, they’re going to love these in their lunchboxes.
Add parmesan and kale to the mixer bowl, blend for 5 sec/speed 9/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
Add remaining ingredients, except for the oil, and mix for 5 sec/speed 4/MC on or until just combined.
Form into small meatballs and lightly fry in a medium frypan until golden brown and cooked.
Bellini Users Use your sharp blade for this recipe and ensure your parmesan is in SMALL CUBES. At step 1 add extra chopping time if required. At step 2 extend mixing time if required, until just combined.
