Who doesn’t love a good meatball? And this one is terrific. It takes a traditional meatball and adds middle eastern spices like mint, dill, and cumin. If you are eating lamb on the Dukan Diet you could also replace half the ground beef with lean ground lamb. Eat these on their own or serve them over spaghetti sauce or cauliflower rice.
