Berlin Bites: Sweet Potato Spinach Balls
I’m always trying to figure out new ways to make healthy finger foods for Berlin since she refuses to eat anything that involves using a utensil. I love using the mini muffin tin to make her meals, but I’ve lately been experimenting with making anything and everything into rolled balls (why does that sound so weird!?).
Sweet Potato Spinach Balls
2 large organic sweet potatoes
1 cup organic finely chopped spinach
1/2 small onion finely chopped
1 tablespoon garbanzo bean flour (or flour of choice)
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with olive oil or use parchment paper to avoiding sticking.
Boil chopped sweet potatoes for approx 10 minutes or until soft
Saute spinach and onions in a skillet for approx 3-4 minutes
Mash sweet potatoes in mixing bowl and add all other ingredients, mix well, adding more flour if necessary
Roll into small balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes
These are perfect finger foods for the littles while sneaking in some veggies-yahoo!
