We love the traditional Sicilian meatball which uses black currants and pine nuts in its mix because of the earthy sweetness the currants bring and the velvety nuttiness from the pine nuts. To mimic this we’ve used raisins and our roasted chickpeas in their place. These are also great as no-roll meatballs where you can scoop the filling directly into a simmering sauce or onto a parchment lined sheet pan for ease of preparation and cooking.
