More Veg to meatballs
Now pop the chickpeas in the food processor and the already prepared vegetables and blitz. Not making chickpea smooth but into smaller pieces
Pop into a bowl and mix the spices and herbs evenly throughout.
Now start forming the bowls. If the mixture is a little too wet add oat flour to absorb the moisture.
Pop in an 200c oven and bake them for 20 minutes until crispy.
Make a spicy tomato sauce to spread over them.
I am a Ikea veggie meatball lover and with Covid, this year and lockdowns I have missed my treat so thought I would try my own version. I have also made into patties to be burgers.
Made too many pop them in the freezer.
