Nutritional information (per serving)


For the meatballs
  • 500g 20% fat lamb mince
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tsp dried mint
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
For the veg
  • 1 large courgette, cut into thick half-moons
  • 300g cherry tomatoes
  • 2 red onions, cut into chunks
  • 1 red pepper, thickly sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced thickly
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
To serve (optional)
  • tzatziki
  • fresh mint
  • pitta breads

Step by step

  1. Put the lamb mince, feta, mint, oregano and tomato purée in a mixing bowl. Add the salt and a good grind of black pepper. Using your hands, mix everything together then bring the mixture together in a big ball.
  2. Tip onto a chopping board and cut the ball in half and then into quarters. Separate each quarter into three and roll each piece into a ball, leaving you with 12 meatballs. If making ahead to freeze, place the meatballs in a medium freezer bag.
  3. Add the courgette, cherry tomatoes, red onions, peppers, oregano, olive oil and lemon juice to a separate large, labelled freezer bag (or a mixing bowl if cooking straight away). Season well and then give everything a good mix together.
  4. If prepping ahead to freeze, slot the bag of meatballs inside the larger bag with all the veggies and seal. Place the bag flat in the freezer. Defrost fully in the fridge before cooking.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Tip all the veggies into a large roasting tin and place the meatballs on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning the meatballs over halfway into the cooking time. If you like, serve the traybake with tzatziki, fresh mint and some hot pitta breads.
