If there is one concept I’m trying to eat more of, it’s pasta! I’ve never been a pasta person, but it actually serves as the perfect medium to pack on the veggies. Today there are also healthier alternatives to standard pasta with the base being lentils or chickpeas etc.
I love to make everything from scratch and skip the pre-made options. That being said, I’ve tried a few vegan meatball concepts over the years, but have never been immensely impressed by anything. The texture was either too soft or it couldn’t be baked without drying out and the list goes on.
Until the Eggplant Cauliflower meatball.
What’s amazing about this meatball, is that it’s quick, easy, affordable, packed to the max with veggies, it naturally binds together, no need for vegan eggs, packs flavor, notes of roasted garlic, can easily be made in bulk, perf for any season, crispy, perfect for entertaining if you wanted to make it into small bites, can even pair it with zucchini noodles for an even healthier spin, and is non vegan approved!
