Fat-Free Vegan Meatballs

Fat-Free Vegan Meatballs

I recently posted a picture of the vegan meatballs I made my kids for dinner. And you guys went crazy on social media asking me for the recipe. So I finally wrote this recipe down and thus far it has been the most requested recipe I have ever posted about.  This is a recipe that my family LOVES, and all credit goes to @a_hearts_journey who lovingly created this recipe for her little one’s birthday.

This is SO good, I asked Eileen if I could share her recipe and she said YES!
(you can all thank me later 🙂 )

What amazes me about this fat-free vegan meatballs recipe is that it delivers a powerful meatball flavor without making my tummy feel weird. And the best part about the recipe is that it is 100% Fat-Free.

Course Main Course
Cuisine Italian
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 4-5 large garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 cups chickpeas cooked
  • 1 ½ tbsp of garbanzo bean flour
  • 2 cups mushrooms of your choice, finely chopped
  • 2 tsps of lemon juice fresh
  • 2 tsps dried Basil
  • 2 tsps dried oregano
  • 2 tsps dried sage
  • 2 tsps dried thyme
servings

Instructions
 

  • Soften onions and garlic over medium heat with a splash of lemon juice. Add the mushrooms (I used a combination of baby bellas and shiitakes) and another tsp of lemon juice to help soften the mushrooms. Then add in all the herbs - basil, oregano, sage and thyme. Heat the herbs for about 2-3 minutes to bring out all the flavor. Then turn off heat.
  • Add the chickpeas (I used canned chickpeas for convenience) and blend. I like to use a hand blender, because then I don’t have to transfer everything over out of my pan. Add garbanzo bean flour to thicken. The mixture will be sticky.
  • Form into balls and place on parchment paper on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees 15-20 minutes. Flip them over and bake another 15-20 minutes.
  • You can pair the meatballs with your favorite tomato sauce and pasta or as I like them, on top of spaghetti squash noodles.
  • And this entire meal will be Fat-Free, especially if your tomato sauce does not have oil in it too. Fat-Free Tomato sauce can be hard to find in a store, but at this time of the year (harvest season), it’s a perfect time to find farm or homemade tomato purees and you can simply add your own spices to them.
