Red Lentil Quinoa Pilaf served with Meatball, Garlic Sauce, and Salad

quinoa meal
Bowls! by Molly Watson has inspiring delicious and healthy one-dish meal ideas. Each recipe in this book serves a family of four. I like the simple instructions and explanations that help us prepare an array of flavourful meals. It shows how we can use ingredients that we may have at home to put together a complete meal or a healthy bowl with vegetables, toppings, sauce, protein, and a base.

Spaghetti and meatballs

for the meatballs
1 1/2 cup minced meat
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp chillie powder
1/4 tsp coriander powder optional
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup parsley chopped
2 tbsp onion chopped
1 tsp garlic chopped
1/2 tsp ginger grated
1 slice bread soaked in 1 to 2 tbsp water

Mix all the ingredients together and put in a food processor and mince it. Make small balls and bake for 1/2 hour at 350F in a lightly greased baking sheet lined with wax paper or on the TFX baking sheet.

for the sauce
1 1/2 cups water
4 to 5 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup tomato chopped
3 tbsp onion chopped
1 green chillie
1 tbsp garlic chopped
1/2 tsp ginger chopped
1 tbsp italian seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper ground

To make the sauce, heat oil sauté the onions. Then sauté the garlic, ginger, chillie and then add the tomato. Add tomato paste mixed with water and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the baked meatballs and cook for about 20 minutes covered with a lid in low heat.

Toss the meatball and sauce with the cooked spaghetti and serve hot.
