Meatballs in broad beans, leeks and courgettes

A fresh and flavour-packed supper by Honey & Co
  1. Heat the oven to 200º. In a large bowl, mix all the meatball ingredients together until they are well combined, then shape the mix into 12-14 balls, each about the size of a ping pong ball. Place them on a roasting tray, bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool a little.
  2. In the meantime, make the cooking sauce. Heat the olive oil in a large pot and sweat the leek, onion and courgette together, sprinkle with the salt and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Add the broad beans, bay leaves and the cinnamon stick and saute for a further 5 minutes
  3. Add the seared meatballs with any juices that may have formed in the roasting tin, add 500ml of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a minimum, add the chopped herbs and cover the pan, simmer for 40mins and serve.
