bread proving. I will write about our trip to Orange soon. Just now my energy levels are well suited to finishing off a half-written post about vegetarian meatballs that I made a few weeks back.
Nummy Kitchen while surfing the net and was curious because it used cottage cheese and nuts. My favourite vegetarian sausage rolls and my favourite Christmas nut roast used cottage cheese. When I had some leftover cottage cheese in the fridge I decided to try it out. However, I just used what was in the house rather than following the recipe closely.
some others, I stick with vegetarian meatballs. Any suggestions are welcome.
vegetarian sausage rolls. Looking around the web, there are lots of ways to serve these "meatballs" - on a sandwich, on top of pizza, in sweet and sour sauce or even in a gravy. I am sure I will be experimenting further. This might be an excellent way to serve fresh pasta if I ever get around to using my new pasta machine.
Meanwhile, I need to finish off packing, get the bread in the oven, bring in the washing, give Zinc lots of attention, make dinner and find some time to visit other blogs.

Veggie Meatballs in Tomato Sauce
Inspired by Nummy Kitchen
1 cup hazelnut meal
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup (unpacked) finely grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
250g cottage cheese
1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
2 x 400g tins of diced tomatoes
slurp of whiskey
few good shakes of smoked paprika and oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
water as required
Mix all ingredients and roll into balls the size of a walnut. Fry lightly in oil and bake for about 30 minutes in a hot oven.
To make tomato sauce: fry onion in oil for 5-10 minutes until lightly browned. Add remaining ingredients and a bit of water to rinse out the tomato tins. Bring to the boil and simmer to thicken slightly. Add meatballs and simmer for a couple of minutes. Turn over and simmer a few more minutes. Serve with either pasta or rice.
