These are chewy and very tasty! Ideal to accompany pasta or o serve as a side dish for rice or top of a a mound of mashed potatoes!
1 cup brown rice cooked
1 medium sized potato
1/4 cup seeded sweet green pepper cut into pieces
1/4 cup seeded sweet red red pepper cut into pieces
1 stalk of celery
1 medium sized tomato, cut into chunks
1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced
1 small onion or 1 tsp. onion powder (1 Tb. onion powder if you are a great onion lover)
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. of equal portions of the following herbs: coriander powder, oregano and cumin
Salt to taste
2 Tb. Masa Harina (you can purchase this in the Latino section of a well-stocked supermarket, it is a form of corn flour)
2 cups Matzo meal (you can also find this at a well-stocked supermarket, or use powdered crackers, but might not yield the same texture)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 vegan vegetable broth cube
1/2 cup water
In a blender or food processor drop the brown rice, the potato, the pepper pieces, the celery, the tomato, the onion and the carrot, with the water. Process till smooth.
Scrape into a bowl and add all the dried ingredients, mixing well until you have a soft dough.
In a saucepan, dissolve the vegetable broth cube into the additional water and bring it to a boil. With a knife or with your fingers, cut the dough into small chunks and drop into the boiling broth.
Cook in it for 25 minutes. Before the chunks are done, begin to prepare your favorite tomato sauce (the kind you would make for pasta.) With a slotted spoon, scoop the chunks out of the liquid and place them into the sauce.
Allow the chunks to absorb some of the liquid of the sauce and the flavors of it.
