Let’s make crispy kurokke (Japanese croquettes) of kabocha and green veggies, with a creamy pesto dip. That’s quick, easy, healthy, yummy.

Green : I mashed steamed favas (broad beans) with a fork, added diced steamed broccoli stalks, salt, pepper, a little kabosu lime zest.
Orange : I mashed the flesh of steamed kabocha pumpkin with salt and paper. Added boiled black edamame beans.

I’ve toasted bread crumbs, added black pepper and a few chili flakes. Rolled the balls in it.
NB : you can sprinkle oil on the crumbs before toasting for a more fried taste.

They can be eaten cold, in a bento lunch box. Or reheated.

In the blender : basil, salt, garlic, walnut, a little grated zest of kabosu lime, a little juice. Then I’ve added silky tofu to get the creamy texture.

For the batter, rinse and soak lentils with brown rice, at least overnight. My ration 1:1 is high in lentils, I like it.
The next day, put the mix in the blender, add salt, turmeric and a little baking powder.

Add cut broccoli stalks and shredded basil. Mix a little more. If you have some broccoli florets you can cut them and add in the batter without remixing.

Variation on a classic. The green coconut milk curry and balls of rice to dip in it.

The little originality is I’ve used fish (cod fish) instead of meat. Then broccoli and goya.

A healthy quick lunch. Veggies, fibers and super healing spice turmeric. In addition, it’s delicious.

The main ingredient is okara, the fiber left when you make soy milk. Here we can buy it in any supermarket, but I had some home-made. (DIY soy milk and okara).

DSC08277-001

The patties are very simply made of :
-cooked okara
-a little potato starch for binding
-a good dose of turmeric,
-salt, pepper
-minced onion
-bits of broccoli
-mint
Mix and cook.
