Happy National Meatball Day!

Today in honor of National meatball Day I’m sharing my Amaze•Balls recipe for Lentil Meatballs! These yummy morsels come together in 30 minutes with less than 10 ingredients and I promise you, no crazy ingredients like unicorn milk 🦄 🥛

With these simple Whole Food Plant-Based ingredients you can have a yummy “meatless” balls great with your favorite pasta or pasta substitute like carrot or zucchini noodles 🤤

The secret to this yummy recipe is the Nola creole spices lentils created with Chef Gone Mad Creole Smokehouse & Cajun Nola for a little heat 🔥You know what they say if you can’t stand the heat 👩🏾‍🍳 “Stay out the kitchen”

Be sure to checkout Chef Gone Mad Spices from this dope & Black owned business bringing the heat!

The second part of this recipe that yields a meaty and flavorful ball is not over pulsing the mix so there are some chunks left but not large chunks. Also taste testing your mixture is a secret to assuring it’s high on the flavor meter.

You want flavor you can see!! 👀

These meatballs pack an awesome 10 mg of protein per 4 meatballs and the recipe yields 12 meatballs. So when they ask you where you get your protein you can say “I pack it in my balls” 🤣🤷🏽‍♀️
