Advieh-Spiced Persian Meatballs

Posted by on December 30, 2013

Lamb is the perfect pairing for our version of the signature Persian spice blend, Advieh, and this easy meatball recipe will have a flavor feast on your table in no time. You can serve them on a bed of greens, over grains or as a sandwich or as a wrap. Garnish with feta, mint, parsley, and pomegranate seeds and complement with a tangy sumac salad dressing or a mellow creamy tzatziki.  Fabulous! Our version uses Panko bread crumbs as the binder, but for a gluten free option you could use lentils, quinoa, or gluten free bread crumbs.

These weren't shared with very many people... we ate them all!
