Makes about 25 Balls
7 Medium sized Sweet Potatoes
1 1/2 Cup Corn Meal (oder feingemahlene 2Min.-Polenta)
1 Tsp. Locust bean gum Powder or other Vegan Egg Options
2 medium Onions
2 Tsp. Salt
1/2 Tsp. Pepper
1 Tsp. Coriander powder
1 Tsp. Cumin powder
1 1/2 Tsp. Garlic powder
Peel and cook the Sweet Potatoes in Water with some Salt until soft
Peel the Onion
Mix in the food processor:
First the onion until cut into small pieces –
Add the the Sweet Potatoes with the spices and the Locus bean gum powder and mix well –
Then add the Corn Meal.
Season to taste and roll little balls (dough is sticky)
Bake them on a non-sticking baking paper on a tray in the oven 200C/400F for 20 Minutes, then turn them and bake them an other 20 Minutes
Fry them in a non sticking Pan with oil until golden brown
Oil-free baked Balls are tasty but a lot dryer then the fried ones. I served them with a creamy Tzatziki
Ingredients for the Tzatziki Dip:
2 Cups of Soy Joghurt
1-4 Garlic cloves (depends on how much you like)
Grade the Cucumber. I leave the peel on, for all the good nutritions in it and salt the grated Cucumber. Let it rest in a bowl for about 20 Minutes.
Press the Cucumber and poor the Water off.
Add the Pepper, press the Garlic and add the Soy Joghurt, mix well and serve chilled
For today/ Tonight I show you an other Recipe from my Bridesmaids Night aka Bridal Shower aka Girls Night.
As I kept everything low fat, I baked these Sweet Potato Corn Balls (I like my food Oil Free and baked). But baking usually makes food dryer then frying.
I believe good creamy Dips and Sauces (low fat of course tzzz) make up for it. So I served them with a lushious vegan Tzatziki Dip, my Tex Mex Salad and some small Tortillas.
I still had some Corn Meal left from the states, but also used some 2-Min.-Polenta, which works perfectly. The dough stays very sticky. SO get ready for some dirty hands!
I believe you can also prepare them for a party and serve them cold, as I ate them cold the next day and they still tasted equally good (I just loooove leftovers!! Don’t you too!?).
Read you soon my dear ones!
