Dive into the rustic-yet-refined world of modern Swedish cuisine with Lagom, which means “not too much and not too little.” Blogger Steffi Knowles-Dellner is a master of this delicate balance. Try her lamb meatballs with lentils and cumin for a hearty, earthy dinner packed with protein and flavor. 

This is really a very simple recipe with plenty of room for experimentation. Try upping the lentil quantity and using less meat or perhaps adding some dried chili to the mix or sauce for an extra kick. Take care not to overcook the lentils as the mushier they get, the more difficult it will be for the meatballs to hold their shape. I love that these are oven-baked – it means no constant hovering over the frying pan and makes for a much healthier meal.
