My recipe today is a meaty substitute made of mushrooms (it is also vegan and vegetarian), but the end result is as savory and satisfying as a beef meatball!

  • Place mushrooms, quinoa, lentils, onion, and garlic in a food processor or blender; pulse until coarsely combined.

  • Sprinkle nutritional yeast, almond meal, flax seeds, Worcestershire sauce, sage, oregano, basil, rosemary, thyme, mint, and cayenne pepper into the food processor. Blend until mixture is combined but still slightly choppy.

  • Shape mixture into balls and arrange on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until darkened and slightly crispy on the outside but moist on the inside, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can add some red wine while blending if you like.

If you want it to be a tad bit more "crispy", you can bake for an extra 10 minutes.

Didn't work so well for me. It was bland (no salt?) didn't hold together and made far too large a quantity. (I was suspicious of the ingredient amounts and cut everything down to 25% (except the pinch ingredients) so I should have had 1 serving. ) It was probably 4 -5 servings. Read More
