Before you start shaping the köfte, you first need to cook the green spelt. Put it in a pot with 400 ml of water and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Then drain it and let it cool down a bit.
Step 2: Prepare the onions and garlic
While the green spelt is cooking, you can peel and finely chop the onions and garlic. Then saute the onions in a pan with a little oil until translucent. Add the garlic and stew briefly. 👅
Step 3: Prepare dough
The next step is to mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Put the green spelt, onions, garlic, chopped parsley, tomato paste and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Now add the spices: salt, bell pepper, paprika and cumin. Mix all these ingredients until you get a uniform dough.
Step 4: Shape and fry the köfte
Now creativity is needed! Shape the dough into small "sausages". Then fry the Köfte in a pan until crispy all around. Voilà, your delicious veganese Köfte recipe is ready to enjoy! 😋
