Instructions

1
1

• Finely chop garlic. Roughly chop baby kale leaves. Thinly slice onion (see ingredients). Thinly slice carrot into half-moons. Drain the sweetcorn. • SPICY! This is a mild spice blend, but use less if you're sensitive to heat! In a medium bowl, combine beef mince, fine breadcrumbs, Tex-Mex spice blend, the egg, half the garlic and a pinch of salt. • Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of beef mixture into small meatballs (4-5 per person). Transfer to a plate.

• Heat a large frying pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook carrot and sweetcorn until tender and lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are “popping” out.

• Return the frying pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook remaining garlic, until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add cauliflower rice and vegetable stock powder (see ingredients) and cook until softened, 2-4 minutes. Transfer to bowl with carrot and corn and season to taste. Cover to keep warm.

• Wipe out the frying pan and return to medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Cook meatballs, turning, until browned, 5-7 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium, then add onion, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. • Add the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and a splash of water and mix well.

TIP: Add a splash more water if the onion mixture looks too thick.
