Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 3 people


  • 500 g (1lb) ground (minced) beef or lamb
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 100 g (3.5oz) feta
  • 75 g (2.5oz) almond meal
  • 1.5 cups almond hummus or other hummus
  • large bunch parsley or coriander to serve


  1. Turn your oven to 250C (480F).
  2. Combine meat, cinnamon, feta, almond meal and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Using clean hands and a soup spoon, scoop a soup spoon sized chunk and roll into a ball with your hands. Place in a baking dish large enough to hold the meatballs in a single layer (I line mine with baking paper so it looks prettier in the picture and is easier to clean up). Repeat with remaining mixture.
  3. Pop the balls in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until well browned on top and no longer pink in the middle.
  4. Divide hummus between 3 plates or shallow bowls. Top with hot meatballs and finish with parsley leaves.
