900g Sweet potato
1/2 C Quinoa (red or white) cook as instructions on pkt but sub 1/2 of the water with veg stock so for 1/2 C quinoa use 1/2 C water + 1/2C veg stock!!
1 C Oats milled into a course flour
1 Tin Black beans -400g
1/2 red onion
1 Tsp Cumin
1Tsp Smokey Paprika
1 largish clove Garlic crushed
1 small chili with seeds (opt)
Salt and pepper to taste
Bake sweet potato 190 deg for aprox 40 mins or until soft
Cook Quinoa and allow to cool
Place your oats into a processor and process till it resembles oat flour
Once sweet potato has baked scoop contents out into food processor along with all the other ingredients, pulse a few times until combined..don’t over blend!!!
Roll into smallish balls
Place baking paper on tray and bake until browned, they will harden a little on cooling!!
