Pinto Bean “Meatballs”

Today we have a great recipe for pinto bean “meatballs”. These are packed full of protein and can be served with a salad or with pasta.

Ingredients:
1 serving of pinto beans
1 serving of vegetables (parsnip, zucchini, cabbage turnip, red onion)
Caraway
1 garlic clove
Curry powder
Vegetable broth
Marjoram
Thyme
Rapeseed oil
1 slice of crispbread

Preparation:
Soak the beans overnight, drain, add fresh water and then cook for 1 hour. Wash the vegetables, clean and grate 1/3 finely and cut the rest into strips to eat as a side. Sauté the onion cubes with garlic, add the grated vegetables and cook until soft. Finally add the herbs and then take off the heat to cool. Blend the crispbread into flour in a food processor. Drain the beans and save some broth, then puree the beans with some broth into a smooth consistency. Add the steamed vegetables and puree everything together. Season as needed and then depending on the consistency, add the crispbread flour until the mixture sticks together. Form small balls and then bake until crisp on the outside. Enjoy!
