Vegan Chickpea Meatball Subs With Homemade Mozzarella

Vegan Chickpea Meatball Subs With Homemade Mozzarella


Ingredients:
1 cup cooked grain (brown rice, quinoa, bulgur, etc.)
1/2 cup pecans
2 cloves garlic, peeled
15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup nutritional yeast or vegan parmesan
2 tbsp sun dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt


Instructions:
  • In a food processor add the cooked grain, pecans, and garlic and pulse until finely ground. Add most of the chickpeas (reserve ~1/2 cup), nutritional yeast, sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, oregano, basil, salt, black pepper, and bread crumbs. Process until ground into a thick mixture. Add the rest of the chickpeas and pulse until they are coarsely chopped.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 ºF, and shape the mixture into balls using about 1 1/2-2 tbsp per ball. A cookie scoop makes quick work of this.
  • Pour a little oil into a small baking tray and spread to coat. Place the balls on the greased tray and roll them around to coat in oil. Bake for 15 minutes, flip, then bake another 10-15 minutes until golden.
