Quick and easy one pot recipe, if you use the cheaty method. Can be cheap if you get lucky with a pack of ready made meatballs on a yellow label…

12 meatballs. Traditionally handmade with minced lamb, parsley, salt, pepper, egg and pudding rice, but ready made turkey meatballs work fine in this cheaty version, with the pudding rice thrown in to cook in the stock with the meatballs
Juice of 1 lemon
1 litre water
1 Knorr style chicken stock cube
2 generous handfuls of pudding rice
1 beaten egg

Heat the water with the stock cube until boiling. Drop in the meatballs with the rice and the lemon juice and cook until the rice is tender.

Gently stir in the beaten egg at the end. You can prevent it from curdling by first adding some of the stock to the egg, to raise the temperature more gently before adding to the pot.
