It’s been awhile since we had a non-dessert item on the blog. Time to remedy that.
Much to Rabi’s chagrin, I’ve been trying to eat less (no) meat. Therefore, the meals I prepare depend on plant proteins (I’m also trying to eat less soy).
I used the Lentil Meatball recipe found here, with a few modifications. Instead of ricotta, I substituted almond yogurt, and just omitted the Parmesan. I also didn’t use any breadcrumbs and the meatballs stuck together just fine. The only note I’ll make is that the meatballs turned out a bit dry. Maybe I left them in the oven a bit too long? Or maybe they needed more yogurt.
To make a tomato sauce, I just heated canned tomatoes with about a 1 Tbsp of sugar (to cut the acidity), salt, pepper, basil, and oregano. You can experiment with the herbs you like the best.
