Ingredients list


Straining mill


  • First, bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil.
  • In the meantime, peel and finely dice the carrots and potatoes. Then add to the boiling water and cook for a few minutes until the vegetables are slightly soft. Then drain and leave to cool.
    400 g carrots, 200 g potatoes
  • Meanwhile, grate the parmesan cheese and finely chop the parsley and spring onion. Equip the straining mill with the middle sieve insert and place it on a sufficiently large bowl. Preheat the static oven to 180°C/360°F.
    20 g parmesan cheese, 1 stick spring onions
  • Now turn the lukewarm carrot and potato cubes through the straining mill. (Alternatively, these can also be mashed with a fork).
  • Then add the breadcrumbs, grated parmesan cheese, chopped parsley and spring onion to the mixture. Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg and mix thoroughly.
    30 g breadcrumbs
  • Now take a handful of the mixture at a time and form into balls or patties with your hands and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Drizzle the carrot balls with a little olive oil and place in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Turn once halfway through the baking time.
  • Remove the golden brown baked balls from the oven and serve immediately hot.
