“Kefta (Lovely Meatballs)” from “Jamie Does…”

Our first recipe from this month’s cookbook, “Jamie Does”, is kefta, a meatball recipe from Marrakesh.

Anna: I chose this one because I was looking for something I could cook easily midweek that didn’t involve a million obscure ingredients. It was very quick to make; it probably took me 10 minutes to make the kefta mix, 10 minutes to roll them out, probably less, and the salad was all just raw ingredients. You have to leave the mixture in the fridge for half an hour, so in total it was 20-30 minutes of preparation time. And I cook slowly. So it’s definitely something you could make midweek. They were really good! And you could do them on the barbecue. The smell reminds me of Turkey, lovely and summery. I suppose if I’d been to Morocco it would smell of there too. I’d give it 7/10.

Kirstin: I think it’s great and I would make it again; perhaps for a lunch. It was really good with red wine. (The wine we drank was Borsao Seleccion 2008.) I’d also give this 7/10.

Verdict: Would we make this again? Yes!
