Day #96: Vegan meatballs and spaghetti
Other than that, it was great! They tasted awesome, but not quite like meat - but I think that's my fault.
The noodles are just run of the mill noodles, cooked in a not-so-special way,
Meatballs consist of:
Kidney beans (28 oz)
Bread crumbs (1/2 cup)
TVP (1/4 cup)
Garlic (2 cloves)
Thyme (1/4 teaspoon)
Oregano (1/4 teaspoon)
Soy sauce (2 tablespoons)
Steak sauce (2 tablespoons)
Mash the kidney beans until no bean is left whole. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mash, knead and smush the concoction until firm and mixed through.
Ball the beans roughly the size of walnuts.
(This may also be why my meatballs weren't how I hoped - I don't know how large walnuts are.)
Fry the beans in oil for 15 minutes, stirring often.
When the noodles are done, serve the noodles and meatballs with marinara sauce.
Now I'm off to watch a movie!
