Oh my oh my oh my ! Introducing my favourite dish of the month… Mung bean and chick pea non meat meat ball tacos… These came about from a mixture of leftovers and an article I read today about mung beans and their endless benefits.
Here we go:
Cook the mung beans (as you would rice)
While your mung beans are cooking blitz the following:
A piece of seitan (I only had a little left so use a packet if you have it)
A handful of cashews
3 or 4 stalks of scallions
A cup of chick peas
Drain the mung beans when cooked and blend them also
Combine all ingredients and add-
Splash of olive oil
Roll into balls and bake at 200 for 30 min or until toasty.
Place your tortillas into a baking tin and shape like tacos. Bake for about 10 min. I popped them into the oven while the balls were baking.
Remove and fill tacos with whatever takes your fancy. I used mixed leaves and placed the balls on top with my tomato sauce from yesterday and the last few scoops of my leftover pesto.
My chief taster Dave (carnivore boyfriend) said this was his favourite dish to date. Oh goodness me! I may have to agree….
