Mint, Red Onion, Carrot and Mashed Potato Baked Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 large baking potato (or several little potatoes) 
  • Approximately 6-8 carrots. Though any number would be fine.
  • 3 tsp Dried chopped basil 
  • 1 tbsp Dried chopped mint
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • Salt/pepper to taste 
  • Olive Oil (optional)
  • Ice Cream Scoop

 Peel, chop and steam your potatoes and carrots until soft. Ours usually take 30 minutes  

Place your steamed vegetables in a bowl with mint, basil, sliced garlic cloves and salt and pepper.  

Finely dice your red onion…  

Mash together and stir in the onion. Do not use a blender the potatoes will become all gluey!   Then fill an ice cream scoop with the mixture .

  

And place the balls on a baking sheet or oven tray.  

We added a little olive oil for extra crispness however this is optional. You could omit the added oil if using a non-stick tray.    

If you’re placing the balls in a stone pan however it is recommended to use a little oil so the balls do not stick to the bottom of the pan.    

Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on how crispy you like them!

These were in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 degrees. Just until they browned nicely at the edges.

Serve with salad and enjoy!
