Savoury Vegan Almond Balls


This is a vegan version of the Swedish vegan balls called ‘Mandelfrikadeller’. Enjoy!

Vegan savoury almond balls, 30 balls

100 g ground almonds or 100 g almond flour
25 g bread crumb
55 g gram flour/ soy flour
1 grated onion
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon turmeric

Flax ‘eggs’:
3 tablespoon ground flax seeds
6-7 tablespoon hot water

1 l water for boiling
1 teaspoon dried herbs
1 teaspoon tomato purée

2 tablespoon vegetable oil for frying
Few drops of soya sauce

1. Start by making the flax mixture. Stir ground flax seeds with hot water.  Leave to swell for about 5 minutes.

2. In a bowl mix almond flour/ground almond, bread crumb, gram flour, grated onion, turmeric , flax mixture, salt and pepper.

3. Mix into a dough. Make sure your dough is smooth and possible to shape but not crumbly. If crumbly add little bit of water and if too loose add a bit more of gram flour. Shape dough in balls. Each ball about 1-1,5 teaspoon of dough.

4. Bring 1 litre of water to boil in a big pot with some dried herbs or bouillon stock of your choice.

5. Add balls by putting them on a strainer ladle and gently lowering ladle in water. Add about 8 balls at a time. Let balls boil for about 5-7 minutes. To make sure that your balls don’t break, just make one ball and boil it to see if it holds. If it breaks add more flax mixture or soy/gram flour.

6. Once they are ready they swell and float on surface. Gently lift them up with strainer ladle.

7. In a frying pan fry the balls for 2-3 minutes. Add few drops of soya sauce to make them darker.

    Hi, it is a lovely share. Can I suggest something ? If possible post while recipe in English and than translate it. It would be easy to read them that way. But it is only a suggestion. 😀
