How to prepare some delicious spinach meatballs
In a bowl, put the minced meat. With a spoon stir a little. Add salt, pepper, crushed spinach (with the blender chopping accessory we give it a few touches to chop it) and egg. We put two small slices of bread (the crumb) in milk and when it absorbs the milk, we add it to the bowl and mix well.
We shape the meatballs . We pass them through flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs, fry them and let them rest on kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
In a frying pan place 1/2 glass of vegetable broth and add the meatballs . Let cook over low heat for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook white rice and heat the tomato sauce in a saucepan.
We serve the hot tomato sauce as a base and on it, the spinach meatballs accompanied by a rich cooked rice.
