2 flavours of Savoury Bliss Balls

In my attempt to have a few more savoury snacks this week I came up with these 2 versions of savoury bliss balls because I wanted to use up some ingredients I had on hand.  Hubby was a bit werided out at first but he really enjoyed the sweet pototo ones on a wrap with some shredded chicken for his lunch today.  I had the Pear ones wrapped in some baby cos with some tuna. Plus they are great on their own.  They would make a nice snack idea on a nibbles tray at a BBQ or party with some hummus or sweet chilli dip! Added bonus is they are nut free unlike most bliss balls so these would be great in the kids lunchboxes!!!

These are also a perfect way to use up leftovers from dinner.  Got to love no wastage!  I had a lot more pear to use up than sweet potato so I ended up with more balls from the pear mixture, you could increase the quantities easily enough depending on the amount you have on hand. 






















Sweet Potato & Feta Bliss Balls
Ingredients:
  • 50g seed mix (pepita & sunflower seeds)
  • 100g cook & cooled sweet potato (steamed best, boiled might make it super wet and mushy)
  • 85g feta
  • 120g cooked & cooled cous cous
  • 10g sweet chilli sauce (more if you want to spice it up!)
  • Salt & Pepper to desired taste preference
Method
  1. In bellini, thermomix or food processor, blitz the seeds so they are ground up a bit. I did speed 8 for 5 seconds, do a bit more if you prefer less texture.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix on speed 5 for 10-15 seconds.
  3. Roll into balls and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Pear & Feta Bliss Balls
Ingredients:
  • 75g seed mix (pepita & sunflower seeds)
  • 200g pear flesh with skin on (remove core)
  • 85g feta
  • 200g cooked & cooled cous cous (plus extra for rolling)
  • 10g sweet chilli sauce (more if you want to spice it up!)
  • Salt & Pepper to desired taste preference
Method
  1. In bellini, thermomix or food processor, blitz the seeds so they are ground up a bit. I did speed 8 for 5 seconds, do a bit more if you prefer less texture.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix on speed 5 for 10-15 seconds.
  3. This is a wet mixture so I popped it into the fridge for 20mins to set a bit first.
  4. Roll into balls and roughly roll in the extra cooked cous cous then store in an airtight container in the fridge.
I would imagine the shelf life in the fridge would only be a few days depending on your expiry date of the feta etc.  

ENJOY!  :-)
