The pistachio and macadamia nuts in these vegetarian Meatballs not only provide a lovely texture when you first bite into these super balls of flavour and goodness but act as a binding agent negating the need to use eggs or breadcrumbs in this dish.

If you want to keep this recipe dairy free omit the Goats Cheese Fetta however, the slight tartness of the Goats Cheese will add another layer to the meatballs.

These healthy and baked Broccoli Meatballs are a great way of enticing kids to eat their broccoli and greens.
