These protein packed flavourful morsels make a perfect lunch or supper the day before a race.
- 1 tin of chickpeas or any other bean (drained)
- 1 clove of crushed garlic
- 2 chopped chillies or 1/2 tsp chili powder
- Chopped celery leaves (take them off the tops of your celery stalks)
- 1 tsp marjoram
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- ½ tsp hot paprika
- 1 tbsp turmeric
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1tsp lemon juice
- ¼ tsp salt
- Bread crumbs (optional)
Put everything in your food processor and blend with the S blade until it forms a thick paste.
Shape into small palm sized balls. Roll in bread crumbs if you wish but this is not necessary.
Bake at 180 for 20 – 30 mins until hot through.
Serve them up in soft pitta breads with mashed avocado or hummus and lots of salsa and fresh veg bits of your choice.
