Avocado minced soya lollipop – Vegan

Avacado soya lollipop

About:

Another delicious and healthy snack with the Avocado and Soya granules combo. You can indulge in one more without much guilt as these are baked and not deep fried. A combination of protein-packed and fiber rich soya granules and avocado makes this a healthy snack for the weight-watchers menu.

Normally we are used to have sweet lollipop, but here it’s a homemade spicy lollipop. Enjoy this appetizer.

Yields: 4-6
Preparation time: 15minutes
Cooking time: 15minutes
Baking time: 25-30minutes

Ingredients:

  • Soya granules – ΒΎ cup
  • Ripe Avocado-1num
  • Powdered oats-1/3cup (more as per the consistency of dough)
  • Minced onion-2tbsp
  • Minced green chillies-1/2tsp
  • Garlic paste-1/2tsp
  • Chopped mint- a handful
  • Lime juice-1-2tbsp
  • Salt- as per taste
  • Oil- for toasting

For coating:

  • Corn flour/Corn starch -2tbsp (dissolved in water)
  • Bread crumbs-4tbs

Procedure:

  • Bring enough water to boil in a sauce pan and cook soya for 10-15minutes, rinse 2-3times in cold water to get rid raw flavour of soya. Drain water completely and squeeze to remove excess water.
  • Take the avocado and slice in half, remove the pit and peel each half, sprinkle some fresh lime juice over each half of avocado slice mash it.
  • In a wide bowl combine mashed avocado, minced soya, onion, green chillies, garlic paste, mint, salt.
  • In small bowl dissolve corn flour in water and set aside
  • Place bread crumbs in a plate and set aside
  • Pre-heat the oven at 200deg c, line and grease a baking tray
  • Make small balls from this mix and shape them like an ice candy or lollipop inserting a stick into each. Do not worry if it is little sticky.
  • If it is sticky roll them in bread crumbs once
  • Then dip the candies in corn flour-water mixture and again roll over bread crumb.
  • Place these candies on the lined baking tray and bake for 20-25minutes/ until slightly golden, flipping half way

Serve hot with ketchup/ salads.

Note:

  • It can be deep fried/grilled instead of baking
  • Soya chunks can be used instead of granules.
  • Grated carrots and peas can also be included.
  • Shape of appetizer can be personalized
