Swedish Meatballs with Cheese Mousse

Ingredients for 6 persons

For the meatballs:
200 g ground veal
200 g ground pork
1 egg
50 ml water
1 shallot
4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
black pepper
For the sauce:
3 tablespoons vegetable broth
1 tablespoon flour
For the mousse:
150 g Nonno Nanni Ricotta
100 g Nonno Nanni Robiola
For the side dish:
1 Genovese courgette


Put the breadcrumbs and water in a bowl, let it rest for 5 minutes, add the finely chopped onion, the meat, salt and pepper and the egg, mix well, form into balls and set aside. Heat water, broth and ginger in a saucepan and keep warm. Heat oil in a deep frying pan and brown the meatballs on all sides to seal, add the broth to cover the meatballs halfway and cook for 15 minutes, then remove them with a slotted spoon and set aside. For the sauce, mix the rest of the broth with a spoon of flour and add to drippings in the meatball pan; cook until it reduces into a sauce. Separately, slice the courgette into strips, season with salt and grill on both sides. Finally, prepare the mousse. Combine the robiola and ricotta in a blender and mix, salt to taste. Serve the meatballs with the cheese mousse and the courgette slices, and drizzle with the ginger sauce.
