Swedish Style Balls – Sally J. Hall, author Plant Based Baby

15-20 Minutes

super easy

Great toddler snacks, these little balls of protein are great hot or cold, with mashed potatoes, with our tomato sauce or in a lunch box. You can even use leftover ones squished into a bun to make an instant burger with tomato relish. This recipe makes a big batch, so you can use some today and some tomorrow.
