There are so many things I love about this meal. First off, you can use any type of meatballs in this recipe – I used some ready made vegetarian meatballs that I had in the freezer – but you could, of course, use actual meaty ones if you prefer.

I also like to cook this recipe all together on one baking sheet which makes it super easy to throw together on a weeknight.

The meatballs are tossed in harissa and oil before cooking so that they’re a bit spicy and super flavourful. Along with the meatballs, there’s potatoes, peppers and a delicious feta yoghurt, delicious!

Why we love these spicy meatballs…

This is a recipe that can be made with meat or easily be made vegetarian or vegan by using veggie meatballs and leaving out the feta yoghurt if necessary.

It’s such a simple recipe to throw together. You can cook the potatoes, peppers and meatballs all together on one pan and then serve up bowls with your hummus and feta.

You can add whatever veggies you like to this dish. I use potatoes and peppers but really anything would work so just add whatever you’ve got in the fridge.

This is a great meal prep recipe as you can cook everything in one go and then build some yummy bowls with the hummus and olives ready for a couple of lunches.

Spicy Harissa Meatballs and Potatoes Ingredients

This section is here to provide further tips and ideas for alternative ingredients. The full recipe and instructions are included in the recipe card at the bottom of the post!

Meatballs: I used some frozen veggie meatballs for this but you can use anything you like from veggie, vegan or meat options. Or homemade!

Vegetables: I like to add sliced peppers and potatoes chopped into small cubes to cook alongside the meatballs.

Harissa Paste: You should be able to find this in your local supermarket or you could use a different chilli paste if you prefer.

Feta Sauce: This is just a mixture of Greek yoghurt and feta blitzed together in a blender.

Hummus and Olives: I love serving this with some hummus and olives although it’s not strictly necessary!

How to make spicy veggie meatballs

Bake the veggies and meatballs: Put the potatoes and peppers on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put in the oven for 20 minutes. In the meantime mix the meatballs with harissa and olive oil then add to the tray and bake for another 20 minutes.

Make the feta yoghurt: Put the feta and yoghurt into a food processor and mix until blended.

Serve: Put hummus in the bottom of two bowls and top with the potatoes, meatballs and peppers. Add the feta yoghurt and olives if using.
