Beanball Pita

If there had been anyone else around me 5 minutes ago, they'd be picking flecks of tomato sauce off their shirts and wondering what snarfing demon had momentarily possessed my sammich-hoover face. And it's all cause of these bean balls, which are like fluffy-beany-savoury-mushy balls smothered in my favouritest of all multitasking sauces - marinara - and piled on a chewy pita with a bit of nayonnaise, nooch, extra sauce, peppers and toms - YUM. V-con has done it again! I actually made a full recipe of something for once and I am SO glad I did, I just have to figure out how to pack something like this for lunch tomorrow without it turning to soup before I get to it (delicious, delicious soup...... *droooools*). I also added worcestershire and black pepper, cause I like those things. :)

(right now they're being extra cooperative and frying in a pretty pattern, but in reality they take a bit of time to brown and it's nice to have a movie playing on a computer next to you while you roll them around with your hand cause it's a much better tool for the job than any utensil)

(I'll also concede that my balls (ahahaha!!) may have had a different texture than intended cause I used homemade beans and then I didn't even measure them. I am lazy queen. :)

ahh, the V'con beanballs!! I've been wanting to make those - love the pita-sandwich idea, for serving them!!

They look very yummy. There are so many recipes in that book that I want to try but haven't yet.
Pita sandwiches are dangerous stuff, it took me years to figure out how to eat them. I hope yours made it to work.

Nice balls. I need to get that book. But, I'm a bit slow on the uptake. I only got VwaV at the start of this month.

Those look very, very good. I haven't received V'con yet and I can't wait!
