Mini Meatballs

This is a great lunchbox food for the kids or a quick weeknight dinner to have with salad!  These would also make a great party food.

500g beef mince
1/2 onion
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 carrot
1/2 cup broccoli florets
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs
1 free range egg
1 tsp onion powder 
Sea salt, pepper to taste

1.  Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.

2.  Process onion, garlic, pumpkin, carrot and broccoli in a food processor (or 5sec/sp7 in Thermomix) until finely chopped.  Tip into a large bowl.

3.  Add remaining ingredients to the chopped veggies and mix with your hands until combined.

4.  Shape the mixture into meatballs and bake for around 20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
