So what did I choose for my last recipe (did the title not give it away? haha)? I made Caitlin’s Garbanzo Bean and Pine Nut Bean Balls!! Caitlin’s blog, See Bride Run, is fantastic! I love seeing the neat meals she puts together and reading about her preparation for her wedding(its sooo soon!!). She is also great friends with Meghann (who I posted about yesterday) and I think its so fun that they both have food blogs!! (oh and she has really adorable dogs...ok enough reasons). Any who, Caitlin blogged about three different kinds of Bean Balls and I choose the Garbanzo/Pine Nut variety because they were Caitlin's favorite and also because I have a HUGE bag of Pine Nuts!
I got dinner made before I left to go teach tonight. I knew I was going to be home late again and wanted to make sure the hungry husband would have some food! Here is the recipe (I made this times 8):
Garbanzo Bean and Pine Nut Bean Balls
· 1 and 1/2 tablespoon garbanzo beans
· 1/2 tablespoon red beans
· 1/2 tablespoon water
· 1/2 tablespoon WW flour (I used 1/4 WW flour and 1/4 bread crumbs)
· 1/2 tablespoon green onion, chopped thinly
· Pinch spinach, chopped thinly
· 1/2 tablespoon pine nuts
Mash together, form into ball, place on greased cookie sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until crunchy.
I served them with a little bit of pasta and a spinach salad.
Caitlin! These were really good! Josh really liked them too- he said they were "Awesome!"
Tonight I taught Body Step (a shortened 45 minute version) and then took Body Pump (also a shortened 45 minute version). I am exhausted!
