Healthy Veggie Sriracha Balls


Howdy everyone! Remember those AWESOME Juicy Portobello Bean Mushrooms I made a couple weeks ago? It was such a hit so I improvised to make a newer version. This time round there are no beans involved. Just purely vegetables!


Broccoli and Red Bell pepper lovers, this one is specially for you! It is perfect as a snack, as an addition to salads or wraps or can be well eaten plain! I have been craving falafels since the first time I had them in Abu Dhabi.


Our friend gave us a tour round the country and introduced us to his favourite Falafel shop. You can customize your falafel fillings in the wrap. One I remembered was filled with oozing cheese! From then on, whenever I see falafels, it brought back many good memories.


This Seriously Veggie balls are a little different from falafels in that they only contain veggies. Great for people who are looking for a light snack during the day or afternoon! It carries a little spice ( Sriracha + Paprika)- you can omit this if you want it to be kid friendly. Just a simple mixing of these 2 ingredients with a little Worcestershire sauce, your favourite spices ( I use Texas Steakhouse rub, a little Sriracha and paprika), ½ cup Panko crumbs and an egg ( or you can use an egg white). Mix Mix Mix and bake for 20 mins.

The balls are extremely moist and yummy. I love them with a little heat!

Broccoli Veggie Balls ( Makes about 15  2" Balls)


- 1 egg ( or egg white)
- 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 whole red bell pepper
- 250g broccoli, chopped coarsely
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp texas steakhouse rub
- 1 tbsp Sriracha + Paprika ( Can add more if you like the patty spicy)

Instructions


1) Preheat oven to 175deg Celsius. Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper and spray a little cooking oil over. 

2) In a food processor, pulse red bell pepper, broccoli until small pieces. If you like a little bite in your veggie balls, don't pulse until too fine. 

3) Add in the Worcestershire sauce, Steakhouse rub, Sriracha sauce, Paprika, egg and Panko crumbs and mix well. 

4) If mixture is too sticky to roll into a ball with your hands, add somemore panko.

5) Roll into balls and place on baking tray and bake for 20 mins until light golden brown. 

6) Optional: Mix Japanese Mayo/ Greek yogurt ( for healthier alternative) with Sriracha for the dip. ENJOY!!
