I make oat and chickpea balls quite frequently. I used to follow a recipe but now I just make it up based on what ingredients I have in and how I would like it to taste.
I started out by putting about 50g of oats, a tin of drained chickpeas, a splash of oil and water and a few seasonings into a food processor. I blitzed this until it all came together to form a dough. I then made this into small balls and gently fried them in a little oil. I moved them about in the pan until they were golden all over.
To make the sauce I mixed passata and a small amount of water together and added garlic puree and basil and seasoned. I brought this to the boil and simmered for a few minutes before pouring into the pan with the dumplings.
I decided to serve this with spaghetti, courgette ribbons and peas.
This was a lovely simple dinner and very enjoyable to eat. This is also a vegan meal, so great for those following vegan and vegetarian diets.
