I've been a little MIA... I know. This week has been a whirlwind and it's only Wednesday. How is that possible? Anyway, I got a lot of action on my Greek Olympic Feast last week so I thought I'd be nice and share the Greek Meatball & Tzatziki recipe. You're welcome.
What's cool about this recipe is that is naturally healthy. I didn't make any modifications to make it "healthier"... it is healthy as it is. Oh, and the other cool thing is that it's a quick one!
As I explained earlier, Rob and I wanted to celebrate the start of the Olympics and I decided to go back to its origin and make GREEK. I'm not usually a Rachael Ray recipe follower, but, this one stood out to me and I knew I'd be able to whip it up after work.
Moisten the bread in the milk (I actually used almond milk because that's what was in my fridge). Mash it together and add it to the bowl with the EVOO and meat (gotta go organic guys, gotta do it!). Then, add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and use your best tools (um, your hands) to mash it it all up and then roll into 1 1/2" balls.
After the cucumber shreds are done straining, add them to the greek yogurt, lemon, dill, salt, and remaining garlic clove mixture in the food processor and whip it up. Tzatziki is so delicious and so healthy. It compliments these meatballs really well! (Plus, works great as a dip with pita, veggies, chips, etc)
Serve with hummus, warm pita bread, Ina Garten's Greek Salad and you're good to go!
How are you all enjoying the Olympics!? Have you prepared any celebratory meals? I'd love to hear about it!
Have an awesome week! xo
