• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. • In a medium bowl, combine beef mince, garlic & herb seasoning, fine breadcrumbs, the egg and a pinch of salt and pepper. • Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of mixture into small meatballs (4-5 per person). Transfer to a baking dish, then drizzle with olive oil. • Bake until browned and cooked through, 15-20 minutes.


• While meatballs are baking, roughly chop carrot and zucchini into bite-sized chunks. Place on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. • Meanwhile, boil the kettle. • When veggies have 10 minutes remaining, place couscous in a medium heatproof bowl. Add vegetable stock powder and the boiling water (3/4 cup for 2 people / 1 1/2 cups for 4 people), stirring to combine. Immediately cover with a plate, then set aside for 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork. Stir through mixed leaves.


• When meatballs are done, add passata, Italian herbs (see ingredients), the water and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to the baking dish. Stir to combine. • Return meatballs to oven to cook until sauce is slightly thickened, 5-8 minutes. • When roast veggies are done, transfer to bowl with the couscous. Gently stir to combine. Season to taste.


• Divide roast veggie couscous between plates. • Top with baked Italian beef meatballs, spooning over the sauce from the baking dish. • Tear over herbs to serve.
