Ingredients

  • 10 ounces yellow rice cooked per package instructions

Spiced Lamb Meatballs

  • 2 pounds ground lamb
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Greek Salad

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 pint sweet baby tomatoes
  • ¼ red onion
  • ¾ cup Greek dressing
  • crumbled goat or feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add yellow rice to a small sauce pan and cook per package instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, add all meatball ingredients to a large bowl and combine with hands until well mixed. Form into about 18 two-inch meatballs.

  3. Add a bit of olive oil to a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high flame then place meatballs in pan. Sear meatballs for about 3 minutes then turn to brown opposite side. Remove pan from flame then place into oven for about 8 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

  4. While meatballs cook, prepare salad: chop cucumbers into one-inch pieces, finely dice red onion, and slice baby tomatoes into halves. Toss vegetables in Greek dressing then set aside.

  5. Assemble power bowls by adding cooked yellow rice, meatballs, and salad to each. Garnish salad with a bit of goat cheese.
