Hey Everyone! Happy Tasty Tuesday Tip Day!! I am really excited about this simple, easy and budget friendly meatball recipe. These are chickpea meatballs (yes I know, crazy right?), but chickpeas are literally less than a dollar and provides protein/fiber and of course makes a good plant based, homemade option!
Now I have used chickpeas in different recipes: tofu chickpea scramble and yes even chickpea cookie dough and here is another to add to the line up. Chickpeas are delicious legumes which are high in protein, fiber, healthy fats and carbs.
Al you need is a few ingredients:
- 1 flax egg
- 1 cup spinach, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 1tsp garlic and onion powders
- 1/2 tsp lite salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup breadcrumb
I added the chickpeas and everything except flax egg and breadcrumbs in my blender. Pour in a bowl and mix.
Next added breadcrumbs and flax egg and mixed.
I formed the mixture into balls and place in skillet with olive oil.
Let the meatballs cook a few minutes then add pasta sauce and fresh spinach and let simmer!!
Place these meatballs over pasta or eat as a meatball sub with cheese!! That would be delicious, right?
