Try my hearty, egg-free, gluten-free pork rissoles and colourful vegetables for dinner tonight! Ideal for those following a gluten-free or egg-free diet.
As a child, I remember watching my mum and dad making rissoles with bread crumbs or tiny pieces of fresh bread. This helps the rissole stay together (along with the one or two eggs added to the mixture) so when I first moved out of home, this is how I made mine too.
One day, however, I had mince, tomatoes, carrots and onions in the fridge but no bread or eggs in my kitchen. So I decided to experiment and see if rissoles could be made without eggs or bread. It turns out they can. They do fall apart if you turn them too quickly, but as long as they’re browned on one side before turning, the cooking process will hold it together.
