Plant-Based Chickpea “Meatballs”
These homemade Italian meatballs made with chickpeas are incredibly flavorful - even meat-eaters will love them! What’s more, chickpeas are full of protein, fiber and folate (an important vitamin that’s not found in many foods). If using dried chickpeas, take a little up-front prep time to soak them. Just cover in water overnight or in the morning, and you’re good to go. This recipe comes together quickly, tastes scrumptious (with a little punch of garlic and sweet carrot!) and is super filling. Serve with marinara sauce
and your favorite pasta
and you have a tasty vegan “spaghetti and meatballs” that your family will devour.
