Sweet potatoes and lentils

Place a steaming basket into a wide pan, fill with water until it is just below the bottom of the basket, add the potatoes, cover and cook over a medium heat for approx. 15 mins. until soft, then drain. Cook the lentils in water for approx. 10 mins. (uncovered), drain.

Vegetable ball mixture

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Sauté the garlic and ginger for approx. 5 mins., leave to cool in a bowl. Add the potatoes, lentils and half of the diced squash, mash with a fork. Add the sweetcorn and breadcrumbs, season, knead by hand until the ingredients form a compact mass. With wet hands, shape into 40 equal-sized balls.

Herb oil

Place the herbs, oil and water in a blending cup, puree until smooth, season with salt.

Squash hummus

In a blending cup, puree the rest of the squash and chickpeas until smooth along with all the other ingredients up to and including the lemon, season.

To fry

Empty the breadcrumbs into a deep dish, brush half of the balls with water, toss in the breadcrumbs in batches, press gently on the crumb coating. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the balls in batches until crispy (approx. 5 mins. per batch).

Good to know
Tip: Use cooked beetroot instead of cooked diced squash.
Note: This vegetable ball recipe serves 8 people. Half of the balls can be frozen. Defrost at least 1 hr. prior to frying. See recipe.
