Preparation of baked pumpkin meatballs
- To start preparing these delicious eggless vegetable balls, boil the pumpkin and potatoes in salted water for at least thirty minutes, so as to make the vegetables soft and workable. Once done, clean the pumpkin pieces, removing the outer skin, and peel the potatoes.
- Put the vegetables in a bowl and mash them with the help of a fork. Add a slice of bread soaked in milk, a teaspoon of cornstarch and the grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper and add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a spoonful of breadcrumbs, then start kneading with your hands. Once the dough has become homogeneous, make balls and put them in a lined baking pan.
- Cook at 180° for about 20 minutes and serve the meatballs still hot. Bon appetit, and good epiphany!
