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!

    What type of bags do you use for spices? Thank you.

    • Sherrie says:

      We use food-grade plastic bags for our spices, or you can order them in glass jars. (They should be stored in jars, not the plastic bags, though.)
