Recipe by: Purrpuss
I love these things – and they freeze beautifully.
2 cups cooked aduki beans
2 cups cooked brown rice
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp lemon juice or veggie stock
Place the beans and rice into a bowl and attack with a masher until reasonably well smashed up.
Water/stock saute the onion and garlic until tender and begining to brown. Add the onions to the bean mix with the rest of the ingredients and a little seasoning. Now get your hands into the bowl and squish everything together – mucky but fun ! With clean wet hands divide the mix into 8 and roll into balls.
Place onto a baking sheet and bake in a hot oven until golden. Serve with Slow Cooked Tomato Sauce (or anything else you want).
Some variations :
Soya sauce, ginger puree and sesame seeds
Tomato puree, italian herbs and balsamic vinegar
Curry spices and coriander leaves (use mung beans instead of adukis)
Mexican spices and creole spices
Lots of fresh herbs (parsley, mint and dill works well, or sage, thyme and rosemary and serve the balls with an onion gravy).
