Serves: 4

By Tech



  • 1 onion

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup

  • 500g mince (beef or pork or whatever you like)

  • 2 cloves garlic crushed

  • 2 handfuls breadcrumbs (granary if you're feeling healthy)

  • 2 carrot (or courgettes work well too)


  1. Finely chop (or whizz in a food processor) onion, carrot, and garlic.
  2. Saute gently in olive oil for about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the mince, onion mixture, breadcrumbs and ketchup (I use a food processor).
  4. Shape into meatballs, place in roasting tin and cook at 180C for about 20 minutes.
  5. Optional: at this stage, add a jar of pasta sauce and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes to heat through.

Handy Hint

Also excellent mix for burgers - just grill for 5 minutes each side.
