  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon, cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

  1. Soak the beans or chickpeas in water overnight. Drain. (If you use fava beans that are not skinless, remove the skins.) Mash the beans or peas into a fine paste in a blender.

Yields 30 to 35 balls.
