Here in Spain we’re all about the tapas, a lot of different dishes in small portions so you can try a bit of everything. I personally also love finger food, it’s the best! My grandpa always said that eating with your hands made food taste better. I really think he was on to something. 🙂 These soy and bean bites make an excellent addition to any tapas dinner. They are super easy to make, and incredibly affordable – you just need texturised soy, white beans, some onion, parsley, cumin and chickpea flour. Here’s how you make them:
- 75g texturised soy
- 250ml veg broth
- 200g cooked white beans
- 1 small onion
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2cm fresh ginger
- Handful fresh parsley
- 100g chickpea flour
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Soak the texturised soy in the veg broth, and set aside for 5 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.
- Put all the ingredients in a food processor, and process until relatively smooth. You still want to have some texture, so make sure you don’t over-process the mixture.
- Rub a bit of olive oil on your hands and form the mixture into balls.
- Place them on a tray lined with baking paper, and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve these with your favorite sauce. I personally love BBQ sauce or Sweet & Sour.
