Spinach meatballs and broccoli buns

These two recipes are for a green dinner that me and my bestfriend cooked for my dad, my sister and her friend. They all loved it and couldn't get enough! The spinach meatballs and the broccoli buns were so delicious, filling and of course, super healthy! They have loooooots of vitamins, minerals, fibers, proteins and a thousand other goodies that makes your body happy and satisfied.

I'm not sure if it's correct that I call them "meatballs" because first of all, they're made out of minced chicken and second of all, we call them "frikadeller" in danish which can not be directly translated into english. Excuse the lack of professionalism!
Anyways, it doesn't matter what you call them because all that matters is that yummy taste!

Here's the recipe for the spinach "meatballs":

1 kg minced chicken (or the meat you like)
5 eggs
5 tbsp rye flour (or the healthy flour you prefer)
250 g chopped, fresh spinach
2 chopped or blended onions
2 cloves chopped or blended garlic
Salt, peber and paprika

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix it with your hands.
Form the meatballs with a tablespoon and fry on the pan on the highest temperature. We didn't use any oil for frying but you can add oil if you like of course.
Fry all the meatballs and serve with the broccoli buns (recipe below) for dinner or lunch!

The broccoli buns are nice and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, which is perfect next to the juicy and flavorfull meatballs. You can also use these fabulous buns for snacking and meals on the go so you don't end up buying something unhealthy because you're hungry in the rush of your everyday life. Win-win!

When all the ingredients are blended together
Here's the recipe for the broccoli buns (makes 10 buns) :

1 broccoli
50 g oats
50 g pine nuts or sesame seeds
4 eggs
1 tsp salt

The buns before baking
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 392 degrees Fahrenheit.
Chop the broccoli into medium sized pieces and boil them for 7 minutes.
Blend together with all the other ingredients until it's a smooth paste and bake for 20 minutes.

I hope you'll enjoy as much as we did!
