INGREDIENTS LENTIL BALLS 200 g red lentils 1 small onion 1 clove of garlic 2 tbsp tomato puree 1.5 tsp paprika powder 1.5 tsp ground cumin 1 half bunch parsley 50 g chickpea flour Salt & pepper TOMATO SOUCE 800 g strained tomatoes 1 pepper 1 onion 1 clove of garlic 2 tbsp tomato puree Salt and pepper Oil
LENTIL BALLS In a pot of water bring to a boil and cook the lentils in it. In the meantime, chop the onion and garlic as small as possible and you can already start with the tomato sauce. Drain the cooked lentils in a colander and let the water drip off. Let the lentils cool and then mix them in a bowl with all the other ingredients, except the chickpea flour. Add the chickpea flour and knead everything into a mass. Now form the individual lentil balls from the mass. Depending on the size you should be able to form about 18 balls. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees convection and bake the lentil balls for 25 minutes on the middle shelf. For the tomato sauce, half the onion and cut it into strips. Finely chop the garlic. Core the peppers, halve them, and cut them into fine strips. Heat a pan with oil and sauté the onions and garlic until translucent. Then add the peppers and fry lightly. Then deglaze with the strained tomatoes, add the tomato paste and simmer gently for about 30 minutes. In the end, season with salt and pepper, stir in some olive oil, and serve with the lentil balls.
