Moroccan Meatballs With Mint Yogurt and Fresh Salad

Updated: Nov 2, 2022

I enjoy trying new foods. I will make something new at least once a week and do try and get the kids to try it at least once before they completely reject it. Most of the time it’s a huge success. Sometimes it can go wrong but they always try it, which is the point. They won’t know if they like it until they try it. These Moroccan Meatballs went down a treat. So I know that this recipe is approved by little ones, which means your little ones will love this recipe too.
