Cheese and vegemite bliss balls
PersonalPoints™ per serving
You’ll never know that the secret ingredient in these deliciously savoury bliss balls is cannellini beans. We promise, you can’t taste them. They’re used as a base to bind the mixture together, and the bonus is that they give you a little bit of fibre too. When tasting these bad boys, you’ll feel like you’ve just bitten into cheese and vegemite on crackers, a delicious Aussie classic.
Canned cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
½ cup(s), (125g)
Light tasty cheese
1 tbs, bacon flavoured (optional)
Plain crackers (jatz)
- Process 3 crackers in a food processor until completely ground. Set aside in a small bowl.
- Process cannellini beans in a food processor until roughly chopped. Add cheese, bacon seasoning (if using), vegemite and remaining crackers and pulse until mixture comes together. Season with pepper.
- Roll level tablespoons of mixture into reserved ground crackers and shape into 14 balls.
TIPS: If you can’t find bacon seasoning, you can leave it out. Put as much or as little vegemite as you like, depending on your personal preference. Store in a reusable container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
