Soy & Bean Bites

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. 🙂     Soy & Bean BitesThese 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.                          Soy & Bean BitesHere’s how you make them:

Ingredients
  1. 75g texturised soy
  2. 250ml veg broth
  3. 200g cooked white beans
  4. 1 small onion
  5. 1 tsp cumin
  6. 2cm fresh ginger
  7. Handful fresh parsley
  8. 100g chickpea flour
  9. Salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Soak the texturised soy in the veg broth, and set aside for 5 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. 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.
  4. Rub a bit of olive oil on your hands and form the mixture into balls.
  5. Place them on a tray lined with baking paper, and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Notes
  1. Serve these with your favorite sauce. I personally love BBQ sauce or Sweet & Sour.
