You can use any vegetables you like in your veggie balls. Some great options include grated carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers. You can also add in some finely chopped herbs like parsley, cilantro, or basil for extra flavor.
When making the veggie ball mixture, it's important to blend the ingredients together well to create a cohesive mixture. You can use a food processor or blender to make the mixture smoother, or simply use a fork or potato masher to mash the ingredients together.
To help the veggie balls hold together, you can also use a binding agent like egg or flaxseed meal mixed with water. If you're vegan, you can use a vegan egg substitute or skip the binding agent altogether and rely on the vegetables to hold the mixture together.
To cook the veggie balls, you can bake them in the oven, fry them in a pan, or even grill them on a barbecue. You can also make a batch ahead of time and freeze them for later use.
Veggie balls are versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. Try serving them with marinara sauce and spaghetti for a vegetarian twist on spaghetti and meatballs, or stuff them into a pita pocket with some hummus and veggies for a delicious vegetarian sandwich.
