Last weekend I took over the Savse Smoothies Instagram account to tell the world all my top tips on staying fit and healthy. That included; how to make the perfect bowl of porridge, a plyometric leg workout that can be done absolutely anywhere, my favourite herbs and spices that should be in every healthy diet, some pre game/training nutritional notes and finally this cracker of a recipe. Healthy turkey meatballs with a spicy tomato & oregano sauce, served over a bed of orzo.
I don’t have Orzo often, I prefer eating grains over pasta as they contain more nutrients but this makes a lovely change and this recipe tastes really comforting and indulgent whilst still being really healthy. You cant ask for much more than that.

Cooking Stages

    • Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C & cover a baking tray with parchment paper.

    • Chop your garlic and ½ onion as finely as you can, then add to a large mixing bowl.

    • Add the remaining ingredients for the meatballs and mix thoroughly with your hands.

    • Form the mincemeat into balls and spread out onto your baking tray.

    • Once complete, pop in the oven for 20 minutes.

    • Add you orzo to a saucepan and cover (by 2cm) with boiling water.

    • Pop the lid on and allow to cook for 10 minutes.

    • Heat a pan on a medium/high heat, add your spices and allow to sweat for two minutes whilst we prep the tomatoes.

    • Chop your tomatoes into small cubes then add to the pan along with your olive oil.

    • Cook for 5 minutes or so until the tomatoes are nice and soft and starting to form a sauce.

    • By this time your meatballs should be done. Remove them from the oven and add to the pan to brown and absorb all that lovely flavour.

    • Cook for another 2-3 minutes then serve your orzo and pour over the sauce and meatballs.

    • Top with a little more fresh tomato and chopped oregano.
