What are meatless meatballs made out of? LENTILS
How do you make vegetarian meatballs? SEE BELOW
Are Ikea meatballs vegan? They are now! (but these are better)
What is tempeh made out of? Soy, but not used here!
I wanted to have a really simple, versatile vegan meatless meatball that didn’t use beans…
Or vital wheat gluten.
Or any of those “weird” vegan ingredients/faux meats....
I’ve done some cool things with eggplant on the meal plans (eggplant provides a nice meaty texture to meatless meatballs), but beans were still in those equations… until now.

P.S. I have best results with home-cooked lentils in this recipe. Pre-cooked lentils (like the ones sold at Trader Joe’s) are harder and firmer and make for balls that tend to fall apart (but their lentils with these seasonings are still fab!).
