Ingredients list for the zucchini corn meatballs

Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

Serves 4-5 :

  • 3/4 pound (300g) beef
  • 1 large handful of grated cheese
  • 1 onion
  • 3 tablespoons corn
  • 1/2 pound (200g) zucchini
  • 2 large cloves of garlic
  • A knob of fresh ginger
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 4 spices


1. In the bowl of a food processor, coarsely chop the onion, garlic, parsley, zucchini and meat. Do not mix too thin, otherwise it loses flavors. We must find the pieces of each ingredient.
2. Transfer this mixture into a bowl and add grated cheese, corn and egg. Mix well.
3. Season with salt and pepper. Add the 4 spices mix and ginger.
4. Shape the meatballs with your palm, the size of a large walnut.
5. Arrange the meatballs on a sheet of parchment paper or a silicone mat and bake at 360°F (180°F) for 15-20 minutes —depending on size of meatballs.
6. Carefully remove the meatballs from the oven, put on skewers and serve hot.

Notes: This preparation is also delicious for stuffed vegetables or samosas. Try with a bit mustard in the stuffing to spice up de meatballs.
