Perfect for a nutritious back to school dinner
500g jar medium Chilli con Carne sauce
2 pouches long grain boil in the bag rice
1 onion, roughly chopped
500g lean minced beef
1 medium sized egg
1 large handful of fresh corinader leaves and stalks
150g ripe cherry tomatoes, halved
What to do:
1 Place the onion, minced beef, egg and most of the coriander (including the stalks) into a food processor and whiz until the onion is finely chopped and the ingredients are well combined. Season with a little pepper.
2 Roll the minced beef mixture into 20 equal sized balls and arrange in the base of a shallow oven-proof dish. Pour over the medium Chilli con Carne sauce and bake for 25 minutes.
3 Stir the meatballs before scattering with cherry tomatoes and bake for a further 2-3 minutes. Whilst the meatballs are in the oven, prepare two bags of long grain boil in the bag rice according to packet instructions.
4 Roughly chop the remainding coriander, scatter over the meatballs and serve with long grain boil in the bag rice.
