Mustardy Meatballs (no, not THAT mustard)

We didn’t mean the condiment! We meant mustard greens which pack just as much flavour. Let them add a peppery kick similar to wasabi in these juicy, flavourful meatballs. With some added chilli flakes, this dish is guaranteed to fulfil your spicy cravings! Pair it with any salad, noodles or pasta; or simply enjoy it on its own as a snack with a side of chilli sauce!
