Ich glaube ich kann sagen mir sind die fleischlosen, kleinen Klößchen gelungen, wenn mein fleischliebender Freund mich ernsthaft anschaut und sagt “Die sind spitze, was ist da drin” ;-)
Und ich muss ehrlich zugeben, das sind sie wirklich. Durch den eisenhaltigen Geschmack des Kichererbesenmehls und der Leinsamen, schmeckt es tatsächlich wie Fleisch. Ich hatte sie Samstag zum Mittag mit Zoodles (Zucchini+Nudel = Zoodles) und dann gleich nocheinmal zum Abendessen mit ein paar Tomaten und einer Scheibe Brot.

I think it’s save to say, that I scored a hit with this little meatless balls, when my meat loving boyfriend looks at me seriously asking “They’re amazing, whats in them?” ;-)
I honestly have to admit, they’re really pretty good. The chickpea flour and flax seeds are what make them really taste like meat, it’s kind of an irony taste. I had them on Saturday for lunch with some zoodles (zucchini+noodles=zoodles) and for dinner with some tomatos and a slice of bread.


Recipe (yields approx. 20 small meatballs)

What you’ll need
1 cup red beans
1 cup chickpea flour (I recommend making your own in a food processor, this way it’s not getting so fine. The little crumbs are what’s making the meatballs a little crunchy.)
1/2 red onion
1 medium shredded carrot
2 flax seed eggs (Means you mix to teaspoons flax seeds with 6 teaspoons water and let it thicken for about 5-10 minutes)
1 tsp. dry coriander (fresh is better if you have)
1/2 tsp. chilli flakes
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. sea salt

What you wanna do
1. Smash the red beans roughly with a fork, then add the shredded carrots, the onion, the herbs and salt and mix throughout
2. Add the flax egg and the flour to the mixture and mix well
3. With your hands, form little balls
4. Fry the meat balls in a pan with the heat turned on high. I recommend using either coconut oil for the frying or even better just some sparkling water, that way you reduce the fat
5. Serve the meat balls with some zoodles
