These make a delightful and healthy snack. If you're not familiar with freekeh, the taste is a bit unusual but still yummy!
Freekeh is a young green wheat that goes through a roasting process. It's low GI, making it a great snack for type 1 diabetics such as myself. If you follow this recipe to a tee, each ball should contain around half an exchange (7.5g carbs).
The veggies in this recipe can be substituted for pretty much anything you have on hand. You'll just need about a cup's worth of cooked and mashed vegetables to add to the cooked freekeh.
The balls keep for a few days in the fridge. I also like to freeze them and reheat them in the microwave when need be.
