1 cup walnuts
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
½ cup chopped parsley
⅓ cup ﬁnely chopped onion
2 tablespoons fresh mint
1 large egg
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.
Combine California walnuts, oats, black beans, parsley, onion and mint in food processor. Pulse until mixture comes together but is still chunky (similar to the texture of cooked ground beef). Be careful not to make the mixture too smooth.
Transfer mixture to a bowl. Stir in egg, chia seeds, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper.
Form mixture into 8-9 even balls and mold into an oval. Carefully skewer with wooden skewers, up about ¾ the length of the oval koftas.
Heat grill or grill pan over medium high heat. Brush grill with olive oil. Place skewers on grill and cook for about 8 minutes per side. Brush koftas with olive oil, if desired.
