These chickpea meatballs are the most satisfying comfort food! They're nutrient-dense, savory, hearty and simple.
They have the perfect texture ~ crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
This recipe calls for chickpeas (my favorite because it contains tons of iron and vitamin C), hemp hearts, nutritional yeast, sun-dried tomatoes and tons of additional flavorful ingredients.
Hemp hearts are rich in digestible protein. Rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, they help reduce inflammation and improve brain function.
These meatballs can be made completely vegan by using a flax egg ~ it's personal preference, but both are extremely flavorful.
Try these meatballs with pasta and pesto, marinara sauce, in a sandwich, in a salad or alone as an appetizer with dipping sauce.
