Yummy Lentil Meatballs

Lentil Meatballs 
Prep time: 15 minutes 
Cook time: 25 minutes 
Makes: ~20 “meatballs”
1/2 tbsp olive oil 
1/2 onion, chopped 
2 cloves garlic, minced 
1 can of green or brown lentils, drained and rinsed
Flax egg; 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water 
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 
1 tbsp Italian seasoning 
1/2 tsp red chili flakes
1/4 cup nutritional yeast 
1 tbsp oat flour 
1 tbsp tomato paste
Salt and pepper to taste 
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare a baking sheet with silicon baking mat or parchment paper. 
  2. Make your flax “Egg” by combining 1 tbsp of ground flax with 3 tbsp water and let sit for 5 minutes. 
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Add chopped onions and sauté until they are translucent and fragrant. Add in minced garlic and sauté for another couple of minutes until fragrant. 
  4. Add onions, garlic, rinsed lentils, flax “egg”, chopped parsley, Italian seasoning, chili flakes, nutritional yeast, oat flour, tomato paste, salt and pepper into a food processor or high powered blender. Mix until combined - not fully blended you still want a little bit of texture. 
  5. If the mixture seems too wet, add in a little bit of oat flour by the tablespoon. 
  6. Form and shape the mixture into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. 
  7. Bake in oven for 25-30minutes. Flip halfway through baking. You will know they are done when they are a golden brown and crispy on the exterior. 
  8. Serve with your favourite pasta and pasta sauce!
