Spaghetti with Lentil Meatballs

This post is dedicated to all the hard core meat eaters out there. Think of it as an evite, or a dare to get out of your comfort zone. To get rid of your preconceived notions about vegan food. Because let’s face it, chances are, you have them. and that’s ok! I have a lots of friends who do, and they’re still my friends.


Please understand, my goal here isn’t to “convert” you *coughs* I mean to help you broaden your horizons, step outside your (culinary) box if you will. And also realise that you eat vegan stuff every day (unless, of course, you’ve never had a carrot, or an apple, or a banana, or pasta, or peanut butter or an oreo cookie in your life… ).


This recipe would be the perfect special weeknight meal. Though it takes a little more time to prepare, it’s still simple in nature and yields an incredibly satisfying meal that’s wonderfully healthy and nutritionally dense. What more could you ask for?



Ahh… These meatballs are not mushy at all, they have the perfect texture in my opinion. Mushy veggie burger or meatball? No thank you! That has got to be one of my biggest pet peeves! These vegan meatballs will bring spaghetti night to a whole new level in your home, and the best news is, they are so simple to make.


Vegan meatballs sounds crazy and I’m not going to say that they taste like meat because it won’t be true. But they taste like falafel, which is also awesome, isn’t it? I mean, they are refreshing and nutty, full of protein and nutrients, served over one-pot whole grain spaghetti with rich marinara sauce. It’s a perfect light spring comfort food for me.


Well, let me just tell you – any meatball would be jealous of all of the flavour packed into these special little lentil (not) meatballs. Seriously, this stuff is so good that I kept eating the lentil mixture straight out of the food processor.


I still love spaghetti and crave it almost weekly. And the good news is, meatless meatballs can taste just as delicious and are even healthier than their meaty counterparts. Who knew? Serve with a green salad and a loaf of fresh, crusty bread if desired. Enjoy!
