Preheat oven to 180º C and grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blitz until you get a blended mince.

Spoon into the muffin in and pat the tops to flatten.

Bake in the oven until cooked through. Remove and allow to cool slightly before turning out.

Serve with salad, vegetables, potatoes or your favourite sauce.

Tip: cover the muffin tin with tinfoil if it looks like the meat cakes might be burning on top.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
