Add them to your favorite Pasta and top it with Parmesan (see my recipe), Delicious !

Ingredients for meatless balls:
1 cup of oats
1 3/4 cooked black beans
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax & 2 1/2 tbsp water, mix together and let sit for 5 minutes)
Salt & pepper to taste

Ingredients for the sauce:
500 ml of ground tomatoes
1 1/2 cup of vegetable stock
3 garlic cloves (minced)

Add oats to a blender, pulse until ground, add all the other ingredients and blend until well combined

Use an ice cream scooper for size and shape in your hand afterwards, add to a plate and refrigerate for 15 minutes

Set the oven at 350F and bake balls until golden brown.

While baking add the sauce ingredients to a pan then transfer balls to sauce and cook  medium heat for 20 minutes stirring occasionally

Enjoy !

PARMESAN

resized

Simply put all 4 ingredients in a small blender, if you prefer it grainier than mine, then just prolong the grinding to make a finer Parmesan

3/4 cup raw cashews
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp sea salt (up to 3/4 if you prefer saltier)
3/4 stp garlic powder

Voila ! the entire process literally takes no more than 5 minutes, it is healthier as it does not have all the store bought preservatives and you save quite a bit of $

Keep refrigerated, although mine never lasts long as we use it as a pasta topping, salads, and my husband’s famous lasagna mmmmm

Enjoy !
