4 Healthy Recipes For Your Holiday Table πŸ˜‹


Vegan Green Lentil Balls


Ingredients:
2 cups green lentils (cooked in water and cooled)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dry thyme
A handful of parsley (chopped)
1/2 tsp red flake pepper
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 onion (grated)
1/2 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup oatmeal breadcrumbs
2-3 tbsp olive oil

Oatmeal flour to coat

Put all of the ingredients together (except flour) and kneed with your hands. Better to let it stand for 20-25 minutes in the fridge.
Use a scoop (dusted with flour) to shape each ball. Spread some flour on a tray. Roll them, shaking the tray. I use a large tray which is easier to shake and cover them with flour.
Heat the skillet on medium heat. Add one spoon of oil and brown balls until golden brown, shaking the skillet and using a wooden spatula to roll the balls around. Serve with pasta sauce! Healthy, tasty and fun to make! Kids will love it πŸ’•A good way to make them eat lentil.

Easy Seedy Savory Cake With Herbs 🌿



Ingredients:
A handful of dill (chopped)
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cup rye flour
1/2 cup grated feta cheese/ or shredded tofu
3 tbsp yogurt/or soy yogurt
1 egg (For vegan version, 1 tbsp chia seed+ 1 tbsp warm water instead)
1 tsp baking powder
Sesame, flax seeds, black seeds

Mix your main dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder) in a bowl and set them aside. Mix egg, yogurt, oil and add the dry ingredients. Add dill, thyme and cheese using a spatula to gently push them to the sides to make it well. Transfer the dough into a small Pyrex dish (greased with oil).
I prefer to use a glass dish for this cake and greasing with oil instead cooking spray) Sprinkle with seeds and bake for ~25-30 minutes at 350 F (175-180 C). Let it cool. Enjoy your tea or coffee with a slice anytime. Also makes a delicious breakfast! πŸ‘
