Tofu Balls
(makes approx. 20 balls)
1 block tofu, firm and pressed (see note at the bottom)
2 eggs
½ orange pepper, chopped fine
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 tsp crushed garlic
1/3 cup fresh parsley
¼ cup chopped walnuts
1 ¼ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup hemp hearts
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
1-2 tsp oil
Pre-heat oven to 350F and lightly coat the bottom of a baking pan with ½ the oilBreak tofu into smaller pieces in a large bowlAdd remaining ingredients and work mixture by hand until well combined and tofu is broken downRoll mixture into approx. 20 golf-ball sized balls, oil hands lightly with remaining oil while making tofu ballsBake for about 25 minutes, turning once halfwayFinish by broiling for 3-5 minutes
Pressing tofu removes a lot of the water content. Wrap tofu in paper towel or a cloth and plate between two cutting boards.  The cloth or paper towel will need to be changed 3-5 times as the water is removed (this takes about an hour).
