So that’s this month’s Daring Cook’s challenge.
The June Daring Cooks’ challenge sure kept us rolling – meatballs, that is! Shelley from C Mom Cook and Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to try meatballs from around the world and to create our own meatball meal celebrating a culture or cuisine of our own choice.
There will be several posts that will appear in the next days on this topic with Japanese chicken meat balls (tsukune) :
So let’s start with this “Italian” version.
Yes, no meat in sight… and well bean versions are allowed.
Taisho kintoki red beans (boiled), garlic, onion, black miso, herbs (oregano and basil), paprika, hot chili and a little potato starch for the binding.
Chinese black miso is the main flavoring.
The cheezy filling is sakekasu (sake lees), tofu, olive oil and salt.
Then they can be steamed in a steamer or in a micro-wave (200 watts). Served in tomato sauce. They are equally good hot and cold.
