Nutty rissoles

I first tasted these rissoles about twenty years ago at Emilia's Vegetarian restaurant in North Curl Curl, Sydney Australia. We had a friend who worked there and as we were moving from NSW, the chef kindly gave us the recipe. ( I will have to find the chocolate beetroot cake in my files- that too is divine and different)

These are divine and if you have a food processor, so quick and easy to make. They need a sauce to go with them; the kids use tomato sauce/ketchup and we use a sweet chilli dipping sauce. I serve with mash potato and a salad.

These rissoles taste even better the next day!
