Veg is for life not just for diets!
Ever feel bored of vegetables? Or never even been a huge fan of them?
Those endless lectures you had to listen too as a kid about how healthy and wonderful vegetables are.
Vegetables that were boiled to death with hardly any salt come to mind?
No doubt it became a real buzz-kill.
But the good news is
If you know how to prepare and cook them, vegetables can be a main meal in its self.
In these veg balls, you’ll find broccoli, pak choi and spinach.
Now I eat a lot of veg, and I mean A LOT! And I never get bored of them.
My weekly veg consumption:
What the heck right?
And to eat all that, I have to think out of the box constantly.
Best part is that you don’t have to figure this out by yourself. I have numerous veggie recipe ideas that you’ll enjoy eating.
Crispy and Gooey
This gluten free cheese filled veg dough balls recipe is one I make regularly.
The psyllium husks and flaxseeds give the balls a crispy outer coating while the gloriously gooey cheese inside is just waiting to ooze out.
You can leave out the cheese if you want, they’ll still be as tasty.
As for flavour, spice is everything.
The slightly bitter, spicy pungency of cumin seeds add a wonderful taste of Asia, while the smoked paprika adds a subtle smoky background.
The secret to these veg dough balls is the lemon pepper. I use Steenbergs organic lemon pepper.
Lemon pepper is one of my most favourite spice. It’s immediately detectable in this recipe but nowhere near overpowering.
The vibrant zing of freshly cracked black pepper and the bittersweet tartness of lemons, provide an alluring contrast of flavours which perks up these dough balls nicely.
Let’s not forget about nutrition here either.
These are filled with potassium, magnesium, iron and other important vitamins and minerals.
This is a GREAT way of getting a load of veg down you at once.
