We are always trying to find new ways to make favorite things in the kitchen, and when we find a really yummy one, we share it with you. This recipe is really easy and super tasty. Enjoy!
3/4 cup couscous
1 cup all-fashioned oats
1 tomato, seeded and cut in chunks
1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced
1 raw potato, peeled and cut in chunks
1/2 cup walnuts (raw)
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 red onion, peeled and sliced
3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste
1/2 cup sweet red pepper strips
1/2 cup sweet green pepper strips
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp. spearmint
1 1/2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
Put 3/4 cups water in a pot, when it starts boiling, drop in the couscous and let sit.
In a bowl, put the oats and cover it with water (about 1/2 cup water) and let it rest for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a food processor or blender, process the walnuts, tomato, potato, carrot, onion, and the peppers into a smooth paste.
Scrape into a bowl large enough to contain all the mixture when you add the rest of the ingredients. Incorporate the couscous and the oats, as well as the seasonings and the oil.
Take portions of the mixture and drop them by large spoonfuls into a walled cookie sheet barely painted with olive oil.
Bake at 400º F and when around 18 minutes have gone by, check them and turn them over. Continue baking until golden brown.
Once baked, drop them into your favorite sauce and let the patties absorb some of the moisture of the sauce, so that they become tender and juicy.
Serve as a sidekick of any dish!
Yield: Depends upon the size you make them
You can also crumble them and drop them into sauce or into a sofrito. You can smother them in your favorite gravy or chop them into your favorite scramble!
