Minced meat is one of the most affordable, flavoursome and versatile ingredients available.
Mix the lamb with the lemon zest, mint, cumin and coriander and season with salt and pepper. Roll into meatballs roughly the size of a walnut.
Mix the yoghurt and lemon juice together and season with salt and pepper.
Preheat a large, lidded frying pan over a moderate heat. Gently roll the meatballs in some olive oil and cook for 4 minutes or until nicely browned. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and cook for 4 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve the meatballs with the lemon yoghurt, grilled lemon wedges, baked potatoes and sautéed spinach or chard.
For a next day work or school lunch, try the meatballs on a roll with some hummus, lettuce, tomato and grated carrot.
The meatballs can be made a day ahead and refrigerated until required.
