Lentil Meatballs

Give falafels a break and try these amazing vegan meatballs made of lentils.

Prep
Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
1 1/2
cup / 350 g uncooked green or brown lentils (the wider kind not these ultra tiny ones)
1/2
onion
1
garlic clove
1
tsp curry powder
1 1/2
tsp salt
3/4
cup / 90 oat flour, raw buckwheat flour or regular flour (about 8 heaping Tbsp)
Directions
1.
Boil the lentils in plenty of water until really soft and rather mushy. It takes about 20 - 25 minutes.
2.
Drain and rinse with cold water. Carefully squeeze out all the excess water. Squeeze and mash the lentils with your hands until they are broken up and really mushy.
3.
Add thinly chopped onion and garlic clove, curry powder, salt and oat flour. Mix carefully and let it sit for a couple of minutes.
4.
Heat up a pan and pour plenty of oil in it. Make your hands wet and form small or medium lentil balls and pan-fry them until crispy and golden brown on both sides. It took me two panfuls.
5.
Serve these wonderful balls with my delicious marinara sauce and spaghetti or with this warm sunflower seed sauce and mashed potatoes. They are also great as a snack when cold or served in a hot-dog or pita bread.
