My favorite month of the year!
The month when I don’t mind being so busy I forget what I went to the bathroom for!
Yes, December is here and I’m so pumped!
I’m looking forward to juggling holiday parties, cookie exchanges, package mailing, holiday menu shopping, my daughter’s month-long birthday celebrations and work!
You see, to me, all of these things have one thing in common – and that is food!
Holiday parties = homemade cake!
Cookie exchanges = homemade cookies!
Mailed packages = more homemade cookies!
Christmas Dinner = me cooking food for it!
And – well, my daughter says her month long birthday celebrations wouldn’t be celebrations if not for food!
As for work – yeah, the first part of one of my job descriptions begins with “food”…
This year for our Christmas dinner, I planned on improving my Easy Vegetarian Meatballs Recipe.
What are the ingredients needed for these Easy Meatless Veggie balls Recipe?
You will need the following 12 main ingredients for these Easy Meatless Veggie balls, along with salt, pepper, and oil:
- Almond meal
- 1 can of chickpeas
- Red onion finely diced
- Garlic diced finely
- Grated ginger
- Potato boiled and mashed roughly with a fork
- Kale chopped up
- Smoked paprika
- Carrot grated
You will also need salt and pepper to taste and a bit of oil.
On my early attempts, I ended up blending the ingredients for too long and ended up with a bit of a gooey mix that might have resulted in delicious veggie meatless pancakes instead of balls!
Then, I changed up the process and only blended up the chickpeas a tad bit and mixed them with the other ingredients, and voila – these plant-based, Easy Meatless Veggie Balls were the result!
This Easy Vegetarian Meatballs Recipe is a winner!
