For the croquettes:
In a pan sautée
A punnet of chop mushrooms
1 red onion
1 clove of garlic
Dried thyme and parsley
Splash of soy sauce


Pop the mushroom mixture into a food processor with half a tin of cannellini beans, 1 cup of mixed nuts and blitz
Grab a scoop or two of wholemeal flour and add to the mixture until it can be easily rolled into your desired shape.
I rolled little balls and then coated them in a mixture of panko crumbs and nutrional yeast flakes
Into the oven at 180c for 30 min
You can deep fry these too if you’re feeling bold.

So tasty… Definitely one to put on your list.
