Preparation of Bean meatballs
First we make our meatballs: pour the beans in a blender and make a puree, we blend well. We transfer the bean puree to a bowl.
We combine salt, olive oil and spices to taste. I used rosemary and a pinch of chilli pepper.
Then we also add the spreadable cheese and mix well.
We need to get a slightly sticky and fairly firm compound.
Then we form our meatballs, we can make them more or less large. Bread them well in a mix of breadcrumbs and crumbled corn flakes, they will make them very crunchy!
Transfer the meatballs to a baking tray with parchment paper and add a drizzle of olive oil. We cook in a fan oven at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes, or in a static oven at 190 degrees for the same time.
The meatballs are delicious both hot and cold even the next day! enjoy your meal.
