A vegetarian version of my family’s classic meatball recipe. It’s absolutely delicious and simple! Depending on the size you make them, they can serve more or less people.
Add salt to water on a medium-sized saucepan. Bring water to a boil. Add lentils and simmer, covered, for 25-30 minutes or until lentils are soft and most of the water is evaporated. Remove from heat.
Partially mash lentils in a mixing bowl. Stir in oats.
Add eggs, garlic, and spices and mix to combine. Add cheese and bread crumbs and mix until you have a slightly sticky mixture that will stay together in a ball but not completely stick to your hands. Some of the ingredients may need to be adjusted to your liking (i.e. if too sticky, add some more bread crumbs). I did have to estimate for some of the measurements since this is a family recipe that doesn’t use measuring!
Once mixture is combined, roll it into balls in the size of your choosing. Pour a thin layer of olive oil into a large pan and allow it to heat over medium heat. Once oil is hot add in meatballs, turning often so they brown evenly. Once they are more of a toasty brown with a slight hardness on the surface, they are done. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
Allow meatballs to cool on a plate that you’ve lined with a paper towel (to remove excess grease). Enjoy in pasta or by themselves with a little salt! Delicious right out of the fridge as well!
Bursting with fresh grilled vegetables, melted mozzarella, creamy goat cheese and basil pesto, these grilled quesadillas are a delicious and unexpected choice for summer barbecues!
