  • 14 ounces beef mince (approx. 6% fat)
  • 3 ounces pasta
  • 1 coarsely grated brown onion
  • 4 tbsp quick oats rolled oats
  • ¼ tsp coarse salt
  • 1 ounce butter

Raspberry dressing

  • 3½ ounces raspberries
  • 1 tbsp dark balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • freshly ground pepper


  • 7 ounces finely chopped oxheart cabbage
  • ½ tsp coarse salt
  • 3½ ounces rinsed baby spinach
  • 1 cucumber in half slices
  • 2½ ounces dried cranberries
  • 3½ ounces raspberries

For serving

  • lightly toasted rye bread


For the beef meatballs

1. Combine the ground meat with the cheese, onions, quick oats and salt. Shape into 12 oblong meatballs. Brown the butter in a frying pan, then cook the meatballs on 3-4 sides over medium heat for approx. 14 min. – turning occasionally.

Raspberry dressing

2. Mash the raspberries and whisk in the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Season the dressing – it should be spicy.


3. Press salt into the oxheart cabbage until it softens slightly to make it easier to eat. Arrange the cabbage, cucumber slices and cranberries on a bed of spinach leaves. Pour a little dressing over and garnish with fresh raspberries.

4. Serve the salad with the rest of the dressing, warm meatballs and lightly toasted rye bread.
