Instructions

1

• Finely chop garlic. Roughly chop baby kale leaves. Thinly slice onion (see ingredients). Thinly slice carrot and courgette into half-moons. • 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 mixture into small meatballs (4-5 per person). Transfer to a plate.

• 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.
