Healthy, with a side of vegetarian meatballs.
4 Ways To Eat Lentil Mushroom Vegetarian Meatballs
- Serve the vegetarian meatballs on spaghetti with cooked cubed butternut squash and a sauce made with basil pesto thinned with a bit of vegetable broth
- With pita bread, tzatziki sauce and a chopped salad made with tomato, black olive and feta cheese in a vinaigrette
- Add the vegetarian meatballs to creamy macaroni and cheese made with finely chopped cauliflower in the sauce
- On farfalle with marinara or tomato sauce, garlic-fried rapini or broccoli and fresh basil leaves
For added texture and flavour and a nutritional boost to your vegetarian meatballs, pulse in ½ cup (125 mL) cooked and cooled quinoa or brown rice, along with lentils and walnuts. To accommodate a dairy-free diet, replace Parmesan cheese with an additional ¼ cup (50 mL) dry bread crumbs. Additionally, canned lentils can be replaced with 2 cups (500 mL) cooked brown or green lentils.
