It’s true that these balls don’t have the same texture as meatballs. But they are super delicious anyway! Mushroom balls in sauce include a lot of chickpeas too. And not that I want to be a smart ass but they are actually really healthy and full of protein.

Delicious mushroom and chickpeas balls in tomato sauce.

By:

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 400 g champignons
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1,5 teaspoon salt
  • Spices (turmeric, smoked red paprika, thyme, oregano)
  • 500 g cooked chickpeas
  • 80-100 g bread crumbs
  • 1 l spiced tomato sauce
  • Optional/Very necessary for the side: Mashed potato
Directions
  • Step 1 Put oil in a pan and start cooking chopped onion and garlic. Cook about 5 minutes then add chopped mushrooms, salt and spices. Cook for another 5-7 minutes on high heat so a lot of liquid evaporates.
  • Step 2 Blend the mixture in a food processor. But don’t blend it too much! We still want small pieces to remain.
  • Step 3 Mix in the bread crumbs. Taste and add spices if necessary.
  • Step 4 Shape golf-sized balls and put them on a parchment paper placed on a baking tray. Bake 40 minutes on 180ºC. (Half way trough I recommend turning the balls.)
  • Step 5 When they are baked and very compact you simply stir them in a hot tomato sauce and serve right away.*

Wise-ass corner

*I suggest you don’t leave the balls in sauce for longer but stir the in right before serving. If they will stay for long they will get soggy (but still delicious, I can confirm.) Just saying! 🙂

Play with spices!
