2 carrots, grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 packet Knorr dry minestrone soup

30 g coriander, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled & roughly chopped
30 ml olive oil
30 ml lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
Robertsons atlantic sea salt

Preparation method

Place the bulgar wheat into a pot with the content of the Knorr stock pot. Bring to a boil then turn the heat down and simmer for about 20 minutes, until cooked. Then drain.
Put the cooked bulgar wheat, onion, carrot, garlic, Knorr Minestrone Soup, chickpeas, breadcrumbs, egg, lemon juice and zest, parsley, coriander and feta into a blender. Blend until the mixture is combined still slightly chunky. Season to taste with Robertson’s Atlantic Sea Salt & Robertson’s Black Pepper.
Roll the mix into golf ball-sized balls. Place them on a tray and allow to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 190C.
Heat the canola oil in a pan over a medium heat. Add the balls, in batches, and allow them to colour, turning them occasionally, then place them back on the tray.
Once all the balls have been pan-fried, put them in the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow them to sit for 5 minutes.
Coriander Hummus
Drain the chickpeas, keeping the liquid.
Put all the ingredients, except the chickpea liquid, into a blender. Blend until smooth, adding enough of the chickpea liquid to get desired consistency.
Season to taste with Robertson’s Atlantic Sea Salt and Robertson’s Black Pepper.
To Serve
Place the balls on a platter around your bowl of coriander hummus. Garnish with extra fresh coriander.
