  • Summary

    This big batch of meatballs is inspired by kofta, the flavor-packed ground meat patties popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Stash them in your freezer so you always have the building blocks of a great meal. Try them simmered in tomato sauce, served over grains or greens, or packed into pita sandwiches with cucumbers, red onion, mint, and a tangy yogurt sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium yellow onions, coarsely chopped (about 3 cups)
    • 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 2 cups parsley leaves with tender stems
    • 1 cup mint leaves
    • 2 pounds ground chicken, preferably a mix of white and dark meat, not "low-fat"
