Slow Cooker Meatballs

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2 carrots, finely diced

  • 2 celery sticks, finely diced

  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 500g carton tomato passata

  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

For the meatballs

  • 400g lean turkey mince or cauliflower rice or quorn mince

  • 4 tbsp porridge oats

  • pinch paprika

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • spray of oil

  • STEP 1: Heat the slow cooker if necessary. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic and fry gently for a minute. Pour in the passata, add the parsley and stir, then transfer the lot to the slow cooker.

  • STEP 2: To make the meatballs, tip the mince into a large bowl. Add the oats, paprika, garlic and plenty of black pepper, and mix everything together with your hands. Divide the mixture into 20 lumps about the size of a walnut and roll each piece into a meatball. Spray or run a non-stick pan with a little oil and gently cook the meatballs until they start to brown. Add them to the tomato base and cook on Low for 5 hours. Serve over rice or pasta if you like, or with a green salad.
