Harissa Meatballs topped with Whipped Feta

This is a huge bowl of store-bought hummus, pita, and olives, with a heap of meatballs on top (also from the store! The SOS life (so easy) meatballs are coated with a harissa, lemon, and olive oil paste and then baked until juicy and crispy. They’re topped with roasted peppers, zucchini, and a tangy, garlicky, whipped Feta.

When I write this out, it sounds very fancy, but every bite is so complex and delicious. In reality, you can buy almost everything and only have to make two things: roast a meatball sheet pan with veggies and prepare a block of cheese.

Ingredients you need to make this happen

Here is our ingredient list for shortcuts:

  • Meatballs
  • Harissa paste is usually sold in a jar in the global foods section of many supermarkets.
  • Bell peppers
  • zucchini
  • Hummus
  • Pita
  • Feta

This big bowl of goodness can be yours if you have olive oil, S&P, and garlic.

Make This Bowl Come Together

What is going on here is that the meatballs are roasted with peppers and zucchini in one pan.

Technically, this is not the right way to cook vegetables because you want to make sure that each vegetable is cooked to perfection. If you’re particular about zucchini, then feel free to use a separate pan for the best roasting. It was most effective (and delicious) for me to add the zucchini onto the same pan, not for the entire time but only for the last few moments of roasting. You know that I am all for easy ways to get the same delicious results. In this case, everyone-on-one pan is the best way.

This Whipped Feta is a must-make

It’s only the feta cheese that requires any “active” cooking. You can blitz it in a mini-chopper or food processor ( This is my favorite affiliate link) until you get a spreadable, creamy wonder.

This recipe, these flavors, and this texture heaven? This is for the big-hearted. This dish is full of color and flavor, with lots of zip from the harissa paste, as well as a lot of salt.

You can either fork and knife it OR get up close and personal with your pita, swooping it into the hummus. Top with some meatballs and veggies, and then finish with the whipped Feta. (10/10 recommend.)

Sheet pan, Part One: Pre-heat the oven to 425°. Place the peppers along one side of a large, flat sheet pan. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with oil. Mix harissa, olive oil, garlic powder, and lemon juice until you get a spreadable paste. The sauce can be applied to the meatballs by either putting them in a bowl and mixing with the sauce or brushing it directly onto the sheet pan. Add the meatballs in the middle of the sheet pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Sheet pan, Part Two: Add some olive oil and a little salt to the pan. Continue roasting for ten more minutes. Broil everything for 5 minutes to get extra browning.

Whip that Feta: In the food processor, chopper, or blender, whip together the feta cheese and garlic to form a thick, creamy sauce.

Serving: Serve the meatballs with veggies, hummus, and your whipped Feta, pita wedges, and whatever else you want (olives or lemons). Now, EAT. Repeat. And repeat. Repeat.
