Recipe // Butternut Squash & Meatballs

This recipe was one of those nights where I had lots of leftover veg in the fridge and I was lacking on meat so I decided to defrost a pack of meatballs. I didn’t fancy cooking pasta, so I wanted to create a dish that would taste great with rice. And…I think I more than managed it – this recipe was delicious!

So what was leftover in my fridge? 

  • Spiralised butternut squash
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 courgette
  • 6 beef meatballs (serves 2)
  • Handful of spinach
  • Passata
  • Spices to season – paprika, garlic, cajun spice
  • Salt & pepper

Once I’d chopped and diced my veg, I added the onion, courgette and meatballs to a frying pan with a dollop of coconut oil.
Once the veg began to brown and the meatballs were cooking, I added the butternut squash and spinach to the pan. Season and stir in the passata to make the sauce.

Serve with boiled rice and enjoy!
