  • 1 medium carrot, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 1 small zucchini, ends trimmed, coarsely grated
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) reduced-salt tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup (80g) coarsely grated light cheddar

  • 3/4 cup (70g) dried (packaged) multigrain breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

Method

Step 1

combine the beef, onion, carrot, zucchini, tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, cheddar and flour into a medium bowl and use your hands to combine.

step 2

roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on an oven tray. Place the breadcrumbs on a plate. Roll each meatball in breadcrumbs to lightly coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or until firm.
