Welsh Beef and Hidden Veggies Koftas


Packed full of flavour but also hidden veggies for your fussy eaters!

  1. Mix the mince and vegetables into a bowl, add the herbs and seasoning.
  2. Stir through the tomato ketchup and ½ the egg. Add more egg if required – you want a soft but firm consistency so the koftas hold their shape. (if too sticky add some breadcrumbs).
  3. Take handfuls of the mixture and shape around the vegetable sticks, chill for 15 minutes (or longer).
  4. These can be cooked on the solid plate of a BBQ, oven or grill for 12-15 minutes depending on thickness.
  5. Serve with dipping sauces – tomato ketchup and a tangy yogurt dip made with natural yogurt, handful chopped mint and dash of sweet chilli sauce.
