Carrot, parsnip, chickpea bahji

BahjiIf you haven’t noticed already… I have my same ingredients that I use but a lot of the recipes can use anything that you like. I think you could grate anything in these: sweet potato, beetroot, etc. just nothing with too much water! The chickpea flour is key to holding these together and make a lot of spice with any combination… even with fresh garlic, ginger, chilli, herbs would be yummm.

Bean Mix Ingredients

  • 150 g carrots, grated
  • 150 g parsnips, grated
  • 120 g chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp each cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp each ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 180° C and line a baking tray with baking paper
  • In a bowl put grated carrot, parsnip, chickpea flour, spices, salt and pepper and use your hands to mix
  • Add in water and mix together. It will look a bit like raw carrot cake mix
  • Roll into balls and place on tray
  • Bake for 20 minutes, maybe turning over half way
  • Serve with salad, my tahini turmeric miso sauce (recipe below) or a homemade relish or however you choose!

Crazy easy!!! You won’t believe it! Have a play and make your own, be sure to tell me how they go!
