Instructions

Make the Mash
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes in 2cm chunks.
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets (like small trees). Halve any large florets.
  • Add the potatoes and cauliflower to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, 12-18 mins. Once cooked, drain n a colander and return to the pot off the heat. 
  • Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water. Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
2
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Chop into roughly 1cm wide, 5cm long batons.
  • Trim the courgette and quarter lengthways. Cut each piece widthways into thirds to make batons.
3
  • Place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add the carrot and courgette and fry until tender, 5-6 mins.
  • Add half the garlic and fry for 30 secs.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Shape the Meatballs
4
  • In a large bowl, combine the mince, half the mustard (double for 4p), Central American spice, breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
  • Season with pepper and mix together by hand.
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, 3-4 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
5
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the meatballs and fry until browned all over, 5-6 mins.
  • Stir in the creme fraiche, parsley and remaining garlic.
  • Cover with a lid or foil and simmer until the meatballs are cooked, 6-7 mins. IMPORTANT: Meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
6
  • Divide cauliflower mash and veg between plates. 
  • Top with mustard meatballs.
  • Spoon over any sauce remaining in the pan.
