Serves: 4, Prep Time: 20 minutes, Total Time: 1 hour.
½ cup rolled oats
1 cup grated carrot
½ cup fresh parsley
⅓ cup fresh basil leaves
4 sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 can kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
2 tbs. chia seeds & 3 tbs. water mixed together
1 tbs. olive oil
1 tsp. dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the oats, grated carrot, parsley, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, walnuts, olive oil, dried oregano, and salt & pepper to the food processor. Process until crumble forms.
Add kidney beans, soaked chia seeds into the food processor and process until everything is combined well.
Roll the mixture into 18-20 balls, packing each ball tightly between your hands so it holds together well.
Place each ball onto the prepared baking sheet an inch or two apart.
Bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven, gently flip and bake for a further 15-20 minutes until nice and golden.
Serve with zucchini pasta and top with homemade pasta sauce.
