Chicken salt potato balls

Ingredients

  • 1.5kg sebago potatoes, washed
  • 100g grated cheddar
  • 60ml (¼ cup) cream
  • 2 tsp chicken salt, plus extra, to serve
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lupin crumb
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 40g (¼ cup) lupin flour
  • ¾ cup crushed toasted protein flakes
  • Sunflower or vegetable oil spray
  • Mayonnaise/jalapeno sauce, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced. Place potatoes on a baking tray and roast for 1 hour or until just tender. Allow to cool before peeling and placing in a large bowl. Use a potato masher or ricer to mash until smooth.
  2. Stir in the cheese, cream, half the chicken salt, 1 egg and half the lupin crumb and breadcrumbs until well combined. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Use a fork to whisk the remaining egg in a bowl. Place the lupin flour and remaining chicken salt in a shallow bowl. Combine the remaining crumbs and flake crumbs in a large bowl.
  4. Roll a heaped tablespoon of potato mixture into a ball. Roll in the flour mixture, then dip in egg (allowing excess to drip off) and roll in crumbs, pressing gently to coat. Place on the prepared tray. Repeat until all potato mixture is used.
  5. Spray potato balls with oil. Place 9-12 balls in an air fryer, leaving room around each ball so they crisp up nicely. Air fry at 200°C for 10 minutes or until balls are crisp and golden. Repeat with remaining balls.
  6. Serve potato balls sprinkled with extra chicken salt and with mayo on the side for dipping.

Lupin hummus

Lupin hummus

Ingredients

60ml (¼ cup) fresh lemon juice

250g (1 ½ cups) cooked lupin crumb, see note.

1 small clove garlic, minced

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving

½ teaspoon ground cumin

Salt to taste

2-3 tablespoons water

Dash ground paprika for serving

60ml ( ¼ cup) well stirred tahini

Method

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for 1 minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for 30 second more. 

Add the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin and a ½ teaspoon salt to the whipped tahini and lemon juice. Process for 30 seconds, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process another 30seconds or until well blended.

Add half the lupin to the processor and process for 1minute. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl, then add remaining lupin and process until thick and quite smooth; 1 to 2 minutes.

Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have tiny bits of lupin. To fix this, with the processor going, slowly add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until you reach the ideal consistency.

Taste for salt and adjust as needed. Serve hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and a dash of paprika.

Store lupin hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate up to one week.
