Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5

Step 1
Heat half the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and garlic until softened, then allow to cool.

Step 2
Beat the egg in a large bowl then add all the remaining ingredients together with the onion & garlic mixture and mix well.

Step 3
Shape the mixture into balls or long tubes, to be approximately the size of golf-balls.

Step 4
Heat the rest of the olive oil in the frying pan, then add the meatballs and brown them all over for a couple of minutes – you may need to do this in batches.

Step 5
Transfer them to an ovenproof dish and place in the oven.

Step 6
Cook them for 10 to 15 minutes until they are cooked through.

Step 7
Serve them with your choice of couscous and/or flatbreads with salad and tzatziki. They can be garnished with additional chopped parsley and chopped mint, a small handful of pomegranate seeds and crumbled feta cheese.
