Blackbean Köttbullar

by - 19:20

One of the most famous dishes here in Sweden are actually Köttbullar, small balls made of minced meat. Most of you might be familiar with them from shopping at IKEA, since swedish people also do eat other things, you will not find them all over the place (at least here in Stockholm)
I have never tasted original köttbullar, as they are always made with egg, which i am allergic to. Starting eating no meat, i came up with a vegan option, made of blackbeans. I tried several times and it is really hard to make them sticking together, but not ending up like dry little rocks.

Level: EASY
What you need (10 Balls):
TIME: 1h // TOOLS: Blender
230g Black Beans (canned&rinsed)
3Tbsp Oats
1 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp smoked Paprika Powder
1 Tsp Mustard
1 Tsp Tomato Paste
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Olive Oil
1 Tsp Flax Seeds


IMPORTANT: Only use canned beans, since old beans might not be soaked long enough. I use a package of ecological natural black beans 380g (230g when rinsed) and never experienced any problems. To be on the safe side, keep the rinsed water and add 1 Tbsp at the end, if your mass is too dry to stick together. 
Blend all your ingredients except for flax seeds in a Blender until it is a firm mass. If your blender strikes, continue blending with a spoon. Blend in the flax seeds and form little balls.
Heat Olive Oil in a pan until hot and fry your balls from all sides, until they turn crispy.
Preheat Oven to 130°c and bake for 40min. 
You can serve them in grilled Eggpant with Kale and top with Tomato and Cheese Sauce.
