Found a tofu around that needed to be cooked before getting too old. These balls are delicious served as a side dish or used as "fake" meatballs over spaghetti and sauce.
1 cup firm/extra firm tofu (150g), mashed with a fork
2 TBS onions, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, roasted or cooked until golden (not raw)
1 small carrot, grated
3 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
2 heaping TBS rice flour
1 dessert spoon (or to taste) olives or capers, chopped (optional)
1 TBS olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Ground flax seeds/Flax meal to coat
Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Process the tofu, onion and garlic until well blended into a rough dough.
Transfer the mix to a bowl. Add the carrot, salt, pepper and olive oil. Mix. Then add the rice flour and, if used, the olives or capers.
Roll into small balls and run them over the ground flax seeds to coat. Bake for ca. 15 minutes.
