Stumbled across this recipe
(mine is slightly altered) a few months back and thought to myself what the hell lets try it. I want to try being a bit healthier and it looks rather nice.
For it you’re going to need some pretty straight forward ingredients
- 1 Tin chickpeas.
- Breadcrumbs ( I used 1/3 to 1/2 a Baguette made into breadcrumbs roughly)
- 1 (or 2) grated carrot(s) (large)
- 5 (decent sized) shallots chopped .. nice milder flavour you could use a red onion as well
- 2 Eggs
- Ground Cumin
- Extras you’ll need … lemon juice
- Make your breadcrumbs first then blend the chickpeas and mix in the breadcrumbs and the shallots.
- Add your grated carrots .
- Add some lemon juice ( used the bottle kind and a few shakes of the bottle)
- 2 tea spoons Cumin (ground)
- Add some corriander ( used a fresh frozen one)
- Add in the 2 beaten eggs
- Mixed it all with hands (obviously it’s no longer in the blender)
- Make it into balls golf size or a bit bigger and flatten a bit.
- Throw them into the fridge for 30 minutes
- Then bake for 30 minutes around 200C
Nice and simple :) not that time consuming either (mainly have to wait for them) … and costs about 1.50 – 2 euro to make six next time will do double and freeze some I think
What you end up doing with yours is up to you. I ate them plain by themselves. I cut one up and put it into a baguette with some rocket, baby tomatoes and wholegrain mustard.
This is a recipe that I used make for myself when I was in my teens and I really love it. It may not look like much at the end but god it’s nice and very filling.
You’re going to need Vegetables. In general I’ll use a veg mix as it’s just a lot handier and there’s generally one in the freezer.
Mangetout / Peppers / Onion / Mushroom really anything you think will work well (I didn’t mention Bean Sprouts with the recent outbreaks).
The mix one I used below has some Brocolli in it.
You’ll need Rice (used a non starchy / sticky kind), Soya Sauce and an Egg or two depending on how much you’re making.
If you don’t have any rice throw it on first as actually making the stir fry takes about 10 minutes in total.
Start by frying your veg in a little bit of olive oil.
It’s a frozen mix so you want to make sure it’s fully heated up. Add some Soya Sauce
Add in some rice ( I’ll generally have some left over rice from a meal the night before I always make extra)
Mix it all and heat up the rice. Depending on the rice if it’s starchy it may stick to the pan. Add in some more soya sauce.
Add in your beaten egg and mix it all fairly lively
It’s quick .. it’s filling it may not look like much but I love it. I tried with a bit of Lea & Perrins sauce here but you really want a Rich Soya Sauce for it’s extra savoury / salty flavour
