These chickpea meatballs are one of my favorite comfort foods! They're nutrient-dense, savory, hearty and super simple.
They have the perfect texture—crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.
This recipe calls for chickpeas, hemp hearts, nutritional yeast, sun-dried tomatoes and tons of additional flavorful ingredients.
Chickpeas are my favorite because they contains tons of iron and vitamin C; hemp hearts give it a plant-based protein boost, along with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids; nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor; and sun-dried tomatoes for umami goodness.
To make these meatballs completely vegan, use a flax egg as the binder—both are extremely flavorful.
Pair these meatballs with pasta and pesto, marinara sauce, add them to a sandwich or as a salad topping. They're also great on their own as an appetizer.
