Lamb Meatballs with Tahini Sauce

Chef notes

Lamb is a main source of protein in the Levant. It’s commonly called Kofta, which is seasoned ground meat with spices, garlic, parsley and sometimes pine nuts, served with the classic combo of tahini sauce. This mixture can be made into meatballs (as seen in this recipe), meatloaf, or onto skewers. By making them into meatballs, you can line them up on a sheet tray and broil them quickly – time saved and an easy clean up!

I’ve included a recipe for a quick pickled cucumber salad that is the perfect pairing for this meal. If you’re new to lamb, this recipe is a no-brainer to introduce you to the protein. If you’re a lamb veteran, enjoy!
