You need
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup bread crumbs (gluten free, if you like)
  • 55gr (more or less) Vegusto, piquant, grated - or another spicy cheeze
  • 60gr red onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup non dairy milk, optional
  • about 2-3 tbsp spelt or wheat flour, depending how moist the mixture is - optional
To do
  1. preheat oven to 200C (392F)
  2. place chickpeas and walnuts in your food processor and mix
  3. add curry powder, salt, bread crumbs and run machine
  4. slowly add oil
  5. you want to end up with a mixture that is firm enough to make balls of; if too thick, add some non dairy milk, if a tad too moist, add the flour
  6. now roll the balls and place on an oven rack with baking paper
  7. bake for about 25 minutes or until the outside is crisp - then they're done!
  8. serve with any sauce you like 🙂
If you want to make them spicy, add chilli powder to the mixture.



  1. I assume that’s half a cup of breadcrumbs?
