You can still enjoy meatballs without the meat. Try this delicious and easy recipe for chickpea meatballs.
I love spaghetti and meatballs! It’s such a classic dish that brings back so many memories. Since going Vegan I’ve been having a lot of fun trying to create my own take on classic recipes without the animal products.
One staple in my pantry that I always have on hand are cans of chickpeas. They’re so versatile and delicious in so many different recipes. I knew I wanted to try them as “meatballs” and I am SO happy with the result.
So what do you need for this recipe?
- Panko breadcrumbs
- Egg replacement (I used JUST Egg)
- Olive oil
- Nutritional yeast (or vegan parm)
- Vegan friendly Worcestershire sauce (I recommend Annie’s brand)
If you’re gluten free, sub for gluten free breadcrumbs. If you don’t have an egg replacer on hand, try 2 flax eggs. It’s easy to switch things out in this recipe and use what you have on hand.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! If you make any of my recipes don’t forget to tag me on IG @plantbasedjane
