Savory Moringa Meatballs

This delicious baked meatball recipe is a regular on our meal plan, being a favorite among our family and guests. Though the ingredient list looks long, these Moringa meatballs come together fairly quickly and can be a fun group activity.  Our toddler enjoys helping with the “kid-friendly” steps, and she loves eating the final product! The recipe is flexible enough to suit differing diets (some users have subbed nutritional yeast in place of cheese, for example), and easily incorporates Moringa powder without altering the savory flavor. We usually share the baking time with some veggies and/or sweet potatoes, and complement the meal with a salad or rice/quinoa. You could also try a few meatballs within a flatbread or tortilla, alongside fresh greens and your favorite dip or dressing, for a nutritious take-along lunch. The cooked meatballs also freeze well and can be reheated and enjoyed weeks later.
