Barley meatballs with pesto

Good Morning !!!!!

As a cereal that does very well and also replaces the flesh, it’s good to introduce it in the diet, as an alternative to the usual cheese or meat, Here the receipe :

  2. Rinse well and boil in salted water with a broken tomato, 1 carrot and a bay leaf.
  3. Cook about 30 minutes, until cooked, drain and remove the tomato carrot and bay leaf.
  4. Place in a bowl, drizzle with two tablespoons of pesto, combine the egg and bread crumbs.
  5. Shape into balls and roll in breadcrumbs.
  6. Grease a baking sheet with oil, place the balls and cook in the oven at 200 g for 20 minutes, turning them over.

I didn’t intentionally wanted to add grated cheese because there is already enough in pesto. Just breadcrumbs and will be tasty!
