Frikkadel .. No Meat


Makes 16

These remind me of the frikkadels my mum used to make for us as a family. Growing up in SA they were a firm favourite. Here is a plant based version that is delish, especially with pickled cabbage and jalapeños.

You will need:

450g Plant based Mince (I’ve used Vivera)

350g grated Courgette

200g Tomato puree

Add these ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine well.

In another bowl add

2 Eggs, beaten

Then and add the garlic, spices and mix well.

2 Cloves of Garlic, minced

Salt & Pepper to taste

Piri Piri Powder to taste

3 heaped tablespoons of Buckwheat flour

Mix in the buckwheat flour.

Take 1 large Tablespoon of the mixture and form a small patty with your hands, gently dipping the mix into some more Buckwheat flour.

Dust each side and gently place into a hot frying pan with coconut oil.

Turn once the side has started browning, repeat until they have reached the desired crispness and remove from the heat.

Serve on a plate with salad leaves, pickled cabbage, jalapeños and a drizzle of tahini.

PS: The mixture would work for burger patty’s too.
