If you don’t want to roast an onion just add in some spring onion green tops for added flavour.

Leeks from my garden. Give them a good wash and use the green and white part. Substitute with spring onion or onion if you don’t have leeks.

You can heat the sauce up on its own and pour over the cooked meatballs or alternatively brown the meatballs and then add the sauce to let it all heat up together. The flavours will develop more if you do it this way, especially if you have added raw spring onion in the blender stage of making the sauce.

Serve with your favourite veggies and salad.

Served without the puree here. The meatballs can be kept separately in the fridge and added to a lunchtime salad, grabbed for a quick snack or reheated for dinner another night.
