Lentils, they are so versatile and there are so many different varieties. I love them. And not only because they are a great replacement for meat. I love them because they taste great and are such a good source of nutients.
These oven roasted red lentil ‘meat’ balls are a recipe from the cookbook The Green Kitchen, again this book proves itself to be a great cookbook, full of delicious and healthy recipes! Perfect to eat as a snack with a fresh yoghurt sauce or to use as ‘meat’ balls with your spaghetti or courgetti. They are oven baked, so a bit dry instead of fat. A little bit of sauce will bring out the best.
Did you already see the nutritional value? 1 small little ball contains 4 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein. Yes, you read it correctly. That’s why it like it so much to cook with legumes!0
