Root parsley hemp seed bonbons
Delicious bonbons with root parsley and hemp seed
- 1 root parsley
- 2 handfuls hemp seed
- 7 medjool dates soaked in water
- 3 tbsp almond meal
- soy milk unsweetened
- stevia or other sweetener - optional
Cut or slice the root parsley and steam it in about 20-25 minutes. You must be able to easily get a fork through it before it's done. You can also boil it but then be sure to remove most of the excess liquid.
Put the hemp seed in a mixer and mix well, preferably a couple of minutes.
Add the root parsley and mix again.
Add the almond meal and mix again.
Make sure the dates are dry before adding them. Add them to the mixture one by one and mix until the whole is sticky and no big pieces of date are left in the mixture.
Roll little balls from your "dough". You can eat these immediately, or put a chocolate coating around them.
Put some soy milk in a pot and sieve several tablespoons of cocoa into the milk.
Bring to boil, and let it boil until you get a thick sort of chocolate sauce. Optionally, during the boiling process you could add some stevia, yacon syrup, or dates to sweeten.
It works best if you have a bonbon mold. Otherwise, it works pretty well to put some chocolate sauce on your hands and roll the balls around in your hands until they are covered in sauce. Put them on a saucer lined with baking paper.
Put in the fridge to cool and stiffen.
