Today started out relatively productive! I caught up on e-mails and went grocery shopping all before 9:30am! :) I decided I would make some vegan "meatballs." I've seen a lot of bloggers make similar things because they freeze well and make great snacks or salad toppers too! I adapted this recipe from Life of Joy. Here's the recipe:
First bring 1 3/4 cups of water to a boil. Once boiled, remove from burner and add 2 cups of TVP. Let this sit while you saute your onion. Saute 1/2 of a large vidalia onion in olive oil until it yellows.
Stir in the TVP into the onions. Add:
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
Then I mixed in 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup all purpose flour.
Once the mixture cools you can roll them in to miniature "meatballs." I baked them on 350 for about 25 minutes. Baking time depends on how crispy you want the exterior to be. However, test one when they come out of the oven to make sure the middle is cooked.
Now off to do work!
