Ricotta & Cumin Meatballs

Last year we got hooked on Celebrity Masterchef - who knew that celebrities COULD cook, and well.

Right at the start of the show, I think maybe episode 1, one of the celebrities cooked a meatball dish that looked family friendly and delicious. Her secret ingredient was ricotta, an ingredient that I've not really used before.

I don't know about you, but I find it hard to ensure that my kids get the right daily dose of nutrients from the sometimes limited food that they WILL eat. So when I have the opportunity to "hide" goodness within a dish I seize it.

I knew if I told my kids, and probably my husband, we were having ricotta for dinner they would run a mile, but I knew that if I told them we were having meatballs they would be at the table within a flash.

So I tried it, I secretly added ricotta to my meatballs and they tasted moist and delicious and the kids were none the wiser. Win/Win.

So give them a try and let me know how you go.

  1. I'm not great at cooking but I love trying... I really like doing recipes that others have done and liked instead of randomly picking ones from cookbooks and hoping for the best!
    I'm excited that you guys are doing this blog.
