Greek Keftedes [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Keftedes is a traditional Greek food. Usually fried meatballs, served with French fries and Greek salad, make the perfect comfort food. When used for parties or meze they are called Keftedakia (the 'akia' means small). For this recipe, we used pinto beans instead of meat but you can use whatever beans you prefer.
