Chicken & Cashew Nut Bites

These yummy Thai-style bites comeon the menu from time to time. They are wheat, gluten and dairy free and are medium-spiced; we serve them with a coconut-lime dipping sauce.

Put cashews, ginger, spring onions and coriander in a food processor bowl. Process until the nuts are finely chopped.

Add the rest of the ingredients and process till all ingredients are minced together.

Roll in to balls – size is up to you.
