  • 2 pounds gold potatoes, cubed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 pounds ground lamb
  • 1 red onion, grated
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large English cucumber, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 5 oz feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place potatoes in a roasting pan with and toss with olive oil, oregano and seasoning with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring half-way, until almost tender.
  3. Meanwhile, zest the lemon and set aside.
  4. Remove potatoes from oven and squeeze lemon juice over and toss to coat.
  5. Return to the oven and roast another 10 minutes or until browned and tender.
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle the zest and parsley over the potatoes and toss again.
  7. While potatoes are roasting, combine ground lamb, red onion, parsley, garlic, oregano, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper, mix with hands and roll into meatballs.
  8. Heat Air Fryer to 350 degrees F. Cook for 12-15 minutes, shaking halfway, until cooked through (cook in batches if needed).
  9. In a large bowl add cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, feta, fresh parsley, and dressing. Toss until fully combined.
  10. Divide potatoes, meatballs and salad into bowls or meal prep containers.


NOTE: If you do not have an Air Fryer, you can heat a tablespoon of avocado oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook meatballs for 15-17 minutes, turning often until cooked through and browned on all sides.
