Recipe - Healthy Meatballs on Courgette 'Fettuccine'

So I have been juicing for a couple of months now and every morning and evening I either feed the guinea pigs or waste disposal a whole lot of pulp. This feels like a waste...and it is! So my aim is to trial using the left over pulp in new ways each week.

Tonight I trialled mixing them into my lean meatball recipe...and it was delicious!

Here is the recipe.

Healthy Meatballs on Courgette 'Fettuccine'

This would serve 5-6

For the meatballs, mix 500g lean mince, dash of wostershire sauce, one egg, left over vegetable juice pulp (mine was a mix of carrot, celery, kale, spinach, beetroot and ginger) and salt and pepper to taste. Combine thoroughly and make into meatballs. Fry in a small amount of olive oil.

For the courgette 'fettuccine' slice 5-6 courgettes length wise (you could create finer ribbons with a julienne slicer or mandolin). Toss in a small amount of coconut flour, salt and pepper. Quick fry in a small amount of coconut oil.

For the sauce I made a cacciatore style tomato sauce by combining a large tin of whole peeled tomatoes, one can of tomato purée, beef stock and a handful of black olives. Season with oregano, basil, salt and pepper to taste. The longer this bubbles away, the taster it gets!

Serve up and enjoy. Tasty, healthy goodness!
