Vegan Asian-Style Takoyaki Balls

These delicious Takoyaki Balls made with Garden Gourmet Vegan Balls are inspired by Japanese street food and will surely satisfy your cravings!

Preparation

1. Prepare the veggies

Clean the spring onions and the carrots. Chop the spring onions into fine rings and finely chop the carrots in long julienne. Break the dried mushrooms into small pieces.

2. Make the sauce

Add the hoisin sauce to a small pot or pan and add around 50ml of water. Bring this mixture to a boil and let it simmer for 5 minutes until it has reduced to a sauce consistency.

3. Toss the Vegan Balls in the sauce

Fry the Garden Gourmet Vegan Balls in a hot pan with oil for about 4 to 6 minutes. Once done, add the sauce to the balls so they are completely covered.

4. Garnish, take a bite and enjoy!

Sprinkle the balls with the spring onion, carrot, water cress and sesame seeds and serve them with the vegan mayonnaise.
