1 Preheat oven to 180ºC. To make meatballs, in a medium-sized bowl mix all meatball ingredients (except cherry tomatoes and oil). By rolling mixture in the palm of your hand, shape into small teaspoon-sized meatballs.
2 Place in an ovenproof baking dish, scatter with cherry tomatoes and spray with a little oil.
3 Cook in oven for 15-20 minutes until brown on top. Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley.
4 To make tzatziki, place listed ingredients in a small bowl and combine. To serve toast pita pockets and stuff with meatballs, roasted tomatoes, salad greens and a dollop of tzatziki.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free breadcrumbs, sweet chilli sauce, harissa paste, reduced-fat sour cream and bread.
Meatballs with pita pockets are also a great take-to-work lunch.
