Thai Spiced Tofu Balls


Have you found yourself in a situation where you need to make sandwiches or rolls whilst on the road and you just don't know what to make? Last week we found ourselves in that situation and we came up with a nice alternative to the usual. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

300g firm tofu
2 teaspoons grated ginger
6 Tablespoons finely diced red onion
3 Tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped
1 Tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 Tablespoons diced red capsicum
2 teaspoons finely chopped lemon grass (white part only)
2 cups cooked short/medium grain brown rice
1/2 cup wholegrain spelt flour
olive oil for frying

  • Put all the ingredients, except the olive oil, in a food processor and process until well combined, but do not over do.
  • Roll the mixture into about 22 balls or patties. Place in the fridge for up 30-60 minutes.
  • Place a little oil in the bottom of a frypan, preferable a non-stick frypan, over medium heat. Once the frypan is hot, all the patties and fry for 5-10 minutes, turning regularly until golden brown on both sides. Put on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
Enjoy and serve with in rolls or even by themselves with the 'Coriander Dipping Sauce' which is used with the 'Vietnamese paper Rolls' recipe. We also enjoy the patties with a tahini sauce which is made with tahini, lemon juice, salt and water to achieve a pourable consistency.
