Lamb Moroccan Meatballs and Chickpea Dosa

Lamb Meatballs

This meal is actually far more simpler than it sounds and it’s a great way for children to be exposed to different flavours.

The Dosa recipe has been sourced from the latest Taste.com.au magazine.

Chicken Meatballs

Chicken Meatballs

I love cooking with mince meat as it’s so versatile and a great way to hide veggies.

This is a really simple and delicious recipe that is packed full of secret goodness and is a fantastic option for children (and adults!) who have food allergies and intolerances.

Quinoa flakes are a great gluten-free substitute for breadcrumbs.  Quinoa is a highly nutritious grain-like seed that actually provides all the essential amino acids needed by the human body!

Nutritional flakes is an inactive toasted yeast.  Has a cheese-like flavour and provides a natural source of vitamin B complex and protein.
