Bean Balls

Bean balls Ingredients:

  • 500 g Monte Castello Tondino Beans;
  • 1 onion;
  • 1 clove;
  • 2 spoons of grated cheese;
  • 1 spoon of breadcrumbs;
  • 2 eggs;
  • Frying oil;
  • Extra virgin olive oil to taste;
  • Salt to taste;
  • Pepper to taste


    Bean balls:

    Rinse the Monte Castello Tondino Beans and cook them in salted water flavored with celery, onion and clove for 40-45 minutes from boiling, 20 minutes if using a pressure cooker. When they are ready, drain them from the cooking water and then pass them through a sieve. In a blender, mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, two egg yolks, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper into the puree. When you have obtained a homogeneous mixture, make it into balls. Pass the balls in the beaten egg white, in the breadcrumbs and then fry in hot oil. Then place them on a baking sheet lined with absorbent paper to remove excess oil and serve.


    Sauce Ingredients:

    • 1 medium courgette;
    • ½ onion;
    • ½ lemon.
