Here's a money saving healthy treat. This recipe is good for those parents who are having a hard time introducing vegetables to their kids.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 20 balls



  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1/4 kg carrots

Does a bulb of garlic mean a single clove or a "head" of garlic?

The recipe sounds great but what are the measurements kg? We use teaspoon, tablespoon. Also, never heard of moringa, not sure any grocery stores in the county carry it, & the two I did call had never heard of it.
