These vegetarian meatballs are made with brown lentils, vegetables, spices, breadcrumbs, egg and parmesan cheese
Combine lentils and 2 cups of water in sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat, cover, and simmer for 30-35 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
Once the lentils are cooked, set them aside to cool.
Place cooked lentils, carrots, onions, garlic, Parmesan, bread crumbs, eggs, parsley, oregano, basil, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well with a large spoon or spatula
Roll lentil mixture into balls (a little bigger than a golf ball). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or cover it with olive oil (either will work). Place meatballs on baking sheet, a few inches apart. Drizzle each meatball with olive oil.
*These “meatballs” can be frozen with or without sauce. Just pop them in the microwave when ready to eat!
