Carrot meatballs with dried fruit

Can without meat… Delicious meatballs can be made from vegetables and legumes, soy or bulgur. This is (should have been) a suggestion for the February cookbook, and also for vegetarians.

Preparation steps

  • Polpete:
  • Cut the carrots into rings and cook for about 10-15 minutes, then drain and mix in a blender or multipractice.
  • Chop the apricots and brown the pine nuts if desired (not necessary).
  • Drain the mixed carrots well, add the egg, chopped apricots, pine nuts, chopped parsley and fresh mint, and a little pepper and salt.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of bread crumbs and form meatballs. roll them in flour a little and fry in heated oil.
  • Drain off excess fat and serve warm (they are delicious and cold).
  • Pilaf:
  • Cook the rice on white al dente.
  • Soak saffron in two tablespoons of water.
  • Lightly fry coriander seeds and chopped almonds in oil, then add cranberries and cinnamon, then stir.
  • Add the cooked rice and saffron, two to three tablespoons of water, mix with the fruit and let it heat up and let the rice absorb the added liquid.
