Kitchen utensils

Preparation steps


Drain the beans and mash them in a bowl with a fork. Peel onions and chop one onion finely, cut the rest into rings. Add chopped onion together with Sambal Oelek, cumin, salt and oat flakes to the kidney beans, pour 3 ounces of hot water over them, mix and leave to stand for 10 minutes.


In the meantime, wash the tomatoes, cut out the stem in a wedge shape and finely dice the flesh. Squeeze the lime. Cut the avocado in half, remove the core, remove the flesh from the skin, dice and mix directly with lime juice. Peel garlic, chop finely and add to the avocado cubes together with tomatoes. Grind mustard and coriander seeds in a mortar and season the salsa with the chili flakes and salt.


Form about 25-30 small balls from the kidney bean dough and fry them on all sides in a pan with 2 tablespoons of hot oil at medium heat.


Meanwhile, in a second pan, fry the onions in the remaining oil, sprinkle with sugar and allow to caramelize.


Wash the spinach, spin dry and add to the tacos together with the tomato and avocado salsa. Place kidney bean balls on top and garnish with caramelized onions.
