  • Summary

    This lentil meatball recipe is adapted/veganized fromthis one by Sprouted Kitchen. This recipe has a few parts, but comes together pretty easily in my opinion. Not a 5 ingredient dish, but definitely a satisfying comfort meal on a cold winter night. It makes terrific leftovers too. If you have leftover squash after eating the rest, eat it with tahini and sea salt for a light snack...that's what I do!

    Ingredients

    • 1 small spaghetti squash, halved & seeds scooped out
    • 2 cups green, brown or french lentils, cooked
    • 2 tbsp ground flax seed, mixed with ? cup water
    • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
    • 1 clove of garlic, minced
    • ½ tsp fennel seed
    • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • Pinch of dried or fresh thyme
    • 1 tsp sea salt
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • 1 tsp crushed red chili flakes
    • ? cup breadcrumbs
