Lentil Meatball Wraps with Avocado and Cucumber Salsa
Green veggies are something we often lack in our diet, because let’s be real – when they’re not done correctly they can taste downright boring. Well the good news is – this is a delicious way to “green outs’ your dinner. These vegetarian meatballs are packed with fresh parsley and served in a lettuce wrap to make this tasty meal nutrient dense and refreshing.
Coconut Curry Meatballs
If you didn’t know already, coconut, curry, chicken and thyme make the ultimate tasty combination when combined in a meatball. Serve these ones with either steamed veggies, salad or rice and make extra as they’re great to keep handy in the freezer or to have for leftovers the next day.
