Lentil Quinoa Meatballs
Trying to eat less meat? You’ll want to try these Lentil Quinoa Meatballs. They’re a bit different than traditional meatballs in that the flavor is slightly different, but also in that you won’t be getting saturated fat, hormones, antibiotics, or any other unwanted ingredients that come with red meat. Instead, you’ll receive tons of fiber, plant-based protein, lots of phytonutrients, and vitamins and minerals found in the quinoa and lentils. What’s fantastic about this recipe is that it’s so versatile. Make them as a party appetizer, stuff them into an organic whole grain wrap, dip them in your favorite plant-based sauce, or top them on spaghetti squash for “spaghetti and meatballs.” Tell us how you enjoy them and what fun things you pair with them in the comments below.
