He-man Meatballs With Sour Cherry Rice And Hummus Sauce

“The chickpea challenge: thanks to our growing love of hummus, the popularity of this humble pulse has soared in recent years. But its future may be threatened by climate change.”

Rebecca Seal, The Financial Times, November 2019

This is a marvellous melange of meatballs with sour cherries, almonds and pistachios, on a bed of fluffy rice, moistened by hummus.

Why he-man….? Well, it’s a beef thing….

NB: you can make everything ahead, only cooking the rice and frying the meatballs at the last minute.


Music to listen to

Obviously the music to listen to while you cook this would be by Only Men Aloud.
