  • To make the meatballs, place All-Bran® Original in a food processor and process until coarse crumbs. Place the All-Bran®Original, the chicken mince, half the garlic, the parsley, basil and egg in a large bowl. Using clean hands, mix all ingredients until well combined. Using slightly wet hands, take heaped teaspoons of the mixture and roll into balls. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Cook the onion, carrot and celery, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add garlic, cook for 1 minute more. Add sock, bring to the boil. Add rice, simmer for 10 minutes or until almost tender.
  • Add corn and beans, simmer for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the meatballs in batches and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes or until just cooked through and they float on the surface.
  • Serve garnished with extra chopped parsley and grated lemon zest.
