Just popping in with a quick recipe for you guys today. If you’ve been tuning in for the past few weeks, you may have noticed these black bean meatless meatballs popping up in my weekly eats! Today’s the day you get the recipe.
Ignore the fact that any kind of “ball” is difficult to photograph. Pretty they are not. Tasty they are 🙂
Black Bean Meatless Meatballs
These vegetarian friendly "meatballs" are as easy as they are delicious.
- 2 c cooked black beans
- 3/4 c cooked quinoa
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 c onion, diced
- 1 Tbsp pesto
- 3 Tbsp hummus
- 1 tsp paprika
- 3/4 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 c breadcrumbs
- In a bowl, smash the black beans well until they start to take on a paste-like consistency.
- Add remaining ingredients and mix well to combine.
- Form into balls, squeezing tightly to help them stick together.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes, rolling them to a different side after 9 minutes.
Pretty simple right?
I’ve been loving these little guys over spaghetti squash, but they’d also be great over real spaghetti. I also plopped a few into my sweet potato soup and guess what- AMAZING 🙂
