Lemon, Chickpea & Vegetable balls (sugar free, dairy free, egg free, gluten free)
These have become a bit of a go-to for me. They are so easy (especially if you have a food processor) and they are packed full of flavour and goodness. They're great on a salad.
150g grated carrot
2 spring onions including all the green bits
2 large garlic cloves
1 can chickpeas (around 425g)
2Tbs lemon juice
1 dessert spoon tahini
1 tsp salt
5 Tbs chickpea flour
I use my food processor to grate the carrot. Then I add all the remaining ingredients and blitz until just combined. But if you don't have a food processor, grate the carrot and use a masher to crush the chickpeas a bit. Roll them into balls and fry in about 2 Tbs coconut oil on medium heat. I have an induction top and I use #4 (it goes up to ten, so that should give you an idea.)
NB. The mixture might seem very very moist, especially if you've used a food processor, but don't worry, after the cooking they'll be perfect!
