The cauliflower for the slaw should be raw but you can cook it in boiling water for 1-2 minutes if you prefer. In that case, drain it well.

You can store the cauliflower slaw in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It tastes best when the flavours have some time to come together.

If you don’t have a muffin tray, you can also bake the meatballs in a regular baking tray lined with parchment paper. Each meatball should be approximately 2″ round, making 12 meatballs.
