INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup crushed macadamia nuts (can substitute with any nut or seed)
  • 2 medium orange sweet potatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 400g chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt

METHOD

Pre-heat the oven to 190ºC.

Peel and chop the sweet potato into chunks and roast for 45 minutes until soft.

Oven-bake chickpeas with the sweet potato in the oven for the last 10 minutes. Toast macadamia nuts in a pan until golden brown and set aside to cool.

Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

Roll into balls (approx. 3.5cm diameter) and serve.
