Mediterranean Power Bowl

For the Meatballs:
 1 ½ lbs ground lamb
 1 small onion
 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
 1 tsp ground cumin
 ½ tsp ground coriander
 zest of 1 orange
 1 large egg + 1 yolk
 ½ cup breadcrumbs (you can use GF)
 1 tsp kosher salt
 ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
For the Mint Tahini Dressing:
 ½ cup Colavita Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 ¼ cup tahini
 2 tsp dijon mustard
 2 tbsp fresh mint
 2 tsp honey
 ½ tsp fine sea salt
 Freshly ground black pepper
 2 tbsp ice-cold water plus more as needed
For the Bowl:
 8 Colavita Sun-dried Tomatoes, roughly chopped
 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  cup Colavita Country-Style Pitted Olives, roughly chopped
 2 small cucumbers, chopped
 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
 1 avocado, sliced
 1 cup Colavita Cous Cous, cooked

Heat your oven to 400°F

First, Prep the Meatballs:

Add the onion, parsley, cilantro, cumin, coriander and orange zest to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is fully combined.


Add the lamb, eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and pulse until all ingredients are fully incorporated.


Form the mixture into 1 1/2" balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook 25 minutes, flipping the meatballs halfway through the cooking process.


Remove from the oven and set aside.

Make the Dressing:

While the meatballs are baking, make dressing. This recipe makes extra dressing. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.


In a liquid measuring cup or jar, combine the Colavita olive oil, tahini, mustard, honey, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Whisk until thoroughly blended.


Add the cold water and whisk again. The water will make the dressing creamy. Salt or pepper, if desired. If your dressing is too thick, whisk in more cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Assemble the Bowl:

Mix together the Colavita cous cous, Colavita sun-dried tomatoes, pepper, Colavita olives, feta cheese and cucumber.


Place three to four meatballs on top of the cous cous mixture and place the avocado slices to the side of the meatballs.


Drizzle with the mint tahini dressing and serve.
