Moroccan Spring Fling!

Well, hello spring like temps. I've missed you. 

Today was 36 but sunny with a real feel of 46. Lovin' the sunshine today. 

Last night I had dinner with some friends and we went to a Persian restaurant. It was so good. Today's flavors are inspired from the Mediterranean region. 

Kefta Meatballs 

1lb Lean ground beef (Kirkland lean 91/9)
1/2 sweet onion approx 120gr
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried mint leaves

Evenly divide into 16 meatballs. Shape either round or slightly flattened. Spray pan. Brown on both sides. Turn down heat to lowest setting and cover for about 5-7 minutes to steam cook the beef. Remove lid and reduce all the condensation. Some onion will fall out of the meatballs. Mixed with the meat drippings, it was delicious to add to the green beans. 

Add a vegetable of choice. I chose a can of cut green beans for an additional 55 cals.
