Author Notes: These green vegan balls have been doing the rounds in my household. They’re very simple to make and only require six ingredients – ingredients that are staples in all kitchens let alone vegan kitchens: chickpeas, brown rice, baby spinach, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. It’s also another vegan airfryer recipe! But don’t worry if you don’t have one – you can cook them in the oven or on the stove, as you would normally cook vegan meatballs or patties.Alannah | Kale Mary


Serves 4

For the balls

  • 2 cups brown rice, cooked
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup baby spinach, washed and dried
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

For the sauce

  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
  1. Blitz all the ingredients for the balls in a food processor until combined, being careful not to over-process (you still want some texture).
  2. Put them in the airfryer for 15-20 minutes on 180 degrees C, turning after 8 minutes.
  3. While the balls are in the airfryer, add all of the sauce ingredients to a shallow pan over a medium heat. Cook until coconut sugar has dissolved and sauce becomes slightly thicker.
  4. Serve balls over a bed of fresh baby spinach and drizzle with the freshly made teriyaki sauce.
