Greek-Style Meatballs with Roasted Red Peppers and Mint

Makes about 16 meatballs
Time 35 min
Based upon the hallmarks of Greek cooking - roasted red peppers, mint, oregano, and feta cheese - these meatballs are so resonant in flavor that you can simply serve them in their own juices. Alternately, eat them with marinara sauce or Cucumber Raita, or serve them on a nest of warm orzo with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice.
