The bed of Harissa spiked bulgar wheat and chickpeas is the perfect bed for these Moroccan inspired beef meatballs, a wonderful winter warmer!
These Moroccan influenced beef meatballs join an ever growing list of meatballs from around the world. Whether they be my very British Faggots or my Japanese influenced Teriyaki Meatballs and of course there are American Italian Meatballs with Spaghetti and even some Indian Chicken Meatballs and that is without mentioning my Beer and BBQ Meatballs! Meatballs are just magic, a wonderfully economic way of stretching meat a little further and providing a big hearty meal at a bargain basement cost.
As with many of my recipes these Moroccan beef meatballs have a wonderful spicy back flavour, this time from harissa paste, one of my favourite store cupboard ingredients that liven up and change up a typical way of using bulgar wheat.
Yes it is great with lots of fresh herbs but it is winter and my herb pot is empty and I object thoroughly to he cost of buying herbs from the supermarket, how expensive. It is however the end of January, seriously how did that happen? Anyway end of January which means I’ll be filling up my herb plot in a matter of weeks and a whole new year of planting will kick off! Now that is exciting, obviously come July it will be grueling 😉
