Method

For the Veggie Meatballs

  1. Chop the garlic finely. In a large pan, heat the oil and fry the finely chopped onions. Frequently stir it for 8 minutes. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and cook for 2 more minutes.
  2. In a bowl, add together the beans, egg, tomato purée, and spices. Mash until smooth. Stir in the almonds and sweetcorn with the thyme, a third of the chopped garlic and the balsamic onions.
  3. Mix well and shape into balls. Place it in the baking tray lined with oiled baking parchment.

For the Tomato Zucchini-getti

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees. Bake the veggie meatballs for 30 minutes until firm.
  2. In a pan, add together the tomatoes, tomato purée, and balsamic vinegar. Cook with 2-3 tablespoons of water until pulpy. Stir in remaining garlic and zucchini-getti.
  3. Turn off the heat as you want to warm the noodles rather than cook them. Serve with the veggie meatballs. Enjoy!
