Chilli Meatballs with Cauliflower Rice

30 minute dinners are my saviour after a long day at university. I love getting home knowing that I can whip up a delicious meal in no time at all without having to faff around looking for something to munch on. I definitely have my staples that I cook pretty much every week without fail and turkey meatballs is one of them, they are so easy, tasty and packed full of protein.
