vegetable balls

Don’t worry, I won’t write my blogposts in Spanish from now. Pepino and albóndiga have been my daughter’s favourite words in her first Spanish course. So funny, so strange, so absolutely not similar to their fellow cucumbers and meatballs in German, English or French. In the end, both nouns happen to match quite nicely in real life. The albóndigas in our recipe are crispy veggie balls, being best when you flatten them to the max – the flatter the crispier! […]

Simply cut them into bits of similar thickness (so that everything is ready at the same time), drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and chuck onto an oven pan in eye pleasing constellations. 200°C and about 20 minutes should do the trick. We had it with a  goat camembert, which […]
