If you have some leftover bulgur, rice or cous cous from the day before, it's super easy to make our delicious vegetarian "meat"balls. We've served them with baby potatoes, tzatziki and a quick salad. Enjoy!


1. Rinse and scrub the potatoes and cook until tender in a pot of salted water. This takes about 12-15 minutes. Be careful not to overcook them.

2. Place the cold bulgur in a bowl. Add egg, finely chopped onion and rinsed and chopped basil. Add red curry paste, flour, salt and pepper and mix the lot into a smooth farce.

3. Shape nice little balls with your palm and a spoon and cook in a mix of butter and olive oil until golden.

4. Grate the cucumber on the rough side of a grater. Place the grated cucumber on a completely clean dishtowel and roll it up. Now wring the dishtowel like you'd wring out a rag, so most of the liquid from the cucumber is wrung out. Don't use your best dishtowel for this!

5. Mix the cucumber with skyr or creme fraiche and pressed or grated garlic and season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Whip up a quick salad from rinsed lettuce leaves, rinsed and cleaned celery slices and rinsed diced tomato. If you have carrots in the fridge you can add some grated.

7. Serve the crispy "meat"balls with the quick salad and dressing of your choice.

8. Enjoy!
