Lamb Meatballs with Tahini Sauce, Fajita Style

Lamb Meatball Fajitas with Tahini Sauce | ourfourforks.comOttolenghi (like the Rose Bakery) is one of those restaurants I was obsessed with before even going to London. My sisters and I gave each other copies of the cookbooks Jerusalem, Ottolenghi and Plenty for multiple holidays and birthdays and I’m pretty sure we’ve covered most recipes between the four of us.

 

Although Yotam Ottolenghi is most famous for his vegetarian food – which is actually good because he’s not scared of fat, carbs or spices – I love his meat recipes too. Full of Middle Eastern spices, these gluten-free lamb meatballs have great flavor which, together with the peppers, onions and tahini sauce, form a different type of fajita. Inspired to use ground lamb by my meat CSA, these little meatballs are great both on and off the tortilla.

Healthy Baked Onion Rings (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Healthy Baked Onion Rings

Growing up a Jets fan (I know, I know), I’ve been programmed to hate the Patriots. And since moving to Boston, I’ve had a good time watching Pats games and hoping for New England loss. But now that the Pats are out too, the fun is over. So, of course, I look forward to the food. Super Bowl food is notoriously unhealthy, so every year I challenge myself to make healthy game day food that actually tastes good. Usually, this doesn’t mean making food that is a low-calorie version of something else; it means making something that is inherently healthy and delicious as is (think pastured bacon wrapped dates).

 

But after having onion rings at our new burger place this weekend, Josh suggested I try a lightened up, gluten-free and vegan version for Sunday. And this recipe fits the bill.
