Every Monday I will be posting a “Meatless Monday” recipe. I wanted to try a new recipe I have had pinned for a while. I have never really been a meat ball person and all my real meat, meat balls I have tried making in the past ended up gross, greasy messes. But these ones from Oh She Glows just sounded yummy and I made sure to try them out this month during my vegan challenge.
I made them during the day and just reheated them in our spaghetti sauce before serving. If you plan on making them with dinner, I would make sure you give yourself a good hour to make the “meat”balls from start to finish. They freeze well, so that is also a good option if you make them a day or more in advance!
I love that these held together so nicely even after simmering in the sauce, a big plus for me considering that they have no real egg to bind them… gotta love flax eggs 😉
They have the perfect look and texture you could expect in a meat ball, especially surprising for them technically being bean balls haha
They were very yummy without being too overpowering. And even better, I had plenty of bean balls leftover to freeze for 2 other meals in the future! Definitely something you want to try if you are a busy mom and have days you just don’t want to cook a whole meal from scratch. Even if you are not vegan, these pass the test. They make a great Meatless Monday meal so go ahead and give them a try!!
