Lentil Meatballs

Vegan Lentil meatballs served over whole wheat pasta.

This is an updated version of my “no”meatball recipe.  I replaced the chickpeas with lentils and they turned out really good.  The lentils give the meatballs a meatier flavor and texture plus they add lots of protein.  Lentil meatballs are perfect served over whole wheat pasta.


Lentil “Meat”Loaf

Lentil Meatloaf

Lentil “Meat”loaf is very hearty and full of great flavors, but it has very little fat unlike a traditional meatloaf.  The lentils and the mushrooms really give this a meaty flavor.  The lentils also provide a ton of protein.   This would go great with mashed potatoes and gravy.


Lentils with Mushrooms


Today was a lovely fall day here in the mountains.  It is really starting to cool down and the leaves are all changing.  I love this time of year.  I also love all the fall foods like cranberries and pumpkin.  Tonight’s dinner was inspired by the fall weather.  I had to make cranberries again because they are my daughter’s favorite.  She begs for them when she sees them in the store.  The lentils and mushrooms were perfect for the chilly evening (plus full of protein) and the mushy peas are another of the kid’s favorites, whichI had been promising them to make the peas for awhile.
