These are the best vegetarian meatballs! Full of protein, fiber, nutrients, and flavor, these will beat the store-bought mushy kind any day. Even meat-eaters (read "my husband") will eat them with pleasure. Great for meat-free Mondays.

Vegetarian Meatballs with microgreens

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 20 oz mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 cup quick cook oats
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup chopped radish microgreens
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 24oz Marinara sauce
  • Mixed microgreens to garnish
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, sauté the onion in olive oil on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, increase the heat to medium-high and cook for 10-15 minutes until the water evaporates and the mushrooms brown. Add garlic, stir briefly for one minute, and transfer into a mixing bowl to cool.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, except marinara and garnishes, and stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight for the flavors and texture to develop.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop (or a tablespoon measure), form small balls from the mixture. Bake them in a preheated oven at 400F for 15 minutes.
  4. Add marinara sauce to a medium saucepan. Add the seasonings and cook on low heat for 10 minutes.
  5. Serve over whole-grain noodles. Garnish with grated Parmesan and mixed microgreens
