Tofu balls "vegetarian Swedish Köttbullar" 1Tofu balls "vegetarian Swedish Köttbullar" 2If you ever read a tale of Astrid Lindren, you will know what “Köttbullar” are. You don’t know? These are small Swedish meatballs, and each time I read from “Emil of Lönneberga” to my daughter, I get such a appetite for these meatballs. But as the whole family are vegetarians, I looked for a recipe without meat, and I found one.

Here is my favorite recipe for tofu balls, we like to have tzatziki, baguette and a big bowl of mixed salad with it. They are also perfect for a picnic, or next day for school.

For about 45 balls you need:

28,2 oz     tofu

4     garlic cloves

3     eggs

1 1/2 teaspoon     mustard

1 1/2 teaspoon     paprika powder

1 1/2 teaspoon     curry

1/2 teaspoon     cumin powder

1 1/2 teaspoon     salt

1 1/2 teaspoon     oregano

3 tablespoon     soy sauce

a bit     pepper

about 16 tablespoon     oat flakes

*   Cut the tofu into small cubes, and chop up the garlic cloves. Put all together in a bowl, take the immersion blender and make it paste-like.

*   Mix it with all the remaining ingredients to a soft but mouldable mixture.

*   With wet hands make small balls, big as walnuts. Take a baking tin with a baking paper and place them on it. Brush a little bit olive oil on each ball.

*   Bake at about 392° F for 30 minutes.
