100 g dried cranberries

2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar

Peel the onion and peel the ginger. Wash the chili pepper, halve it lengthways and remove the seeds. Then finely chop the onion, ginger and chili pepper. Now cut the apple rings into small pieces and bring them to the boil in a pot on the stove with the onion, ginger, chili, sugar, cranberries, raspberry vinegar, apple juice and gingerbread spice and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Now season with the lime juice, sugar and salt.


Ingredients for the meatballs:

1 carrot

100g celery

1 piece of ginger (2 cm)

1 shallot (small onion)

1 stalk of leek

4 tablespoons olive oil

250 g red lentils

1 egg

Juice of 1 lime

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 pinch of cayenne pepper

pepper from the grinder

1 to 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs




Peel the carrot, celery and ginger and peel off the shallot. Dice everything finely. Then wash the leek thoroughly and also cut the middle third into small pieces. Heat the olive oil in a pot and sauté the vegetables over medium heat. Rinse the lentils thoroughly and add them to the vegetables. Cover the vegetables and lentils with water, bring to the boil briefly and let simmer over low to medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes.

Drain off the excess water and briefly puree with a stand mixer. Now add the egg, then season the mixture with lime juice, curry powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Now mix in enough breadcrumbs so that the lentil mixture can be easily formed into meatballs.

The lentil meatballs can be easily heated on the grill or in the pan. Arrange the veggie meatballs with cranberry chutney on plates and serve. A fresh salad goes well with it.
