Sesame Balls and Dipping Sauce

These are for using up leftovers.

To feed a family – 2 adults, 2 kids- you’ll need.

Roughly
1/2 cup of cooked pulses (probably white beans of some sort)
1/2 cup cooked rice
1/2 onion
1/2 cup vegetable (yup that vague- carrot or courgette are good)
1/4 cup uncooked polenta
1/2 cup sesame seeds
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

You could also add:
Red chilli
Lemongrass
Corriander

Blend everything except the sesame seeds together into something the texture of Humous. Add extra polenta if it’s really sloppy.

Using one hand for wet (the mixture) and one for dry (the seeds) make little balls and roll them in sesame seeds. This is messy.

Bake at 150c for an hour and then allow to cool.

Then either fry in a generous amount of oil or spray with oil and bake for 20 minutes.

Make dipping sauces to your taste- the kids have plain soy sauce, we have sirracha, sweet chilli sauce and this:

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon tahini
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 inch lemongrass
1 red chilli
Small handful corriander
1 clove garlic
All blended up.
