Author Wondermom Wannabe


For Meatballs

  • 1 cup cooked lentils
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped beet greens or other dark, leafy greens
  • 1/2 small onion minced
  • 1 large carrot finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup oat flour for vegan or 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

For Sauce

  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 1 T molasses


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  • Combine all ingredients for meatballs in a medium bowl, mixing well to coat all ingredients with egg.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop balls of meatball dough and place 1-2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375°F for 9-11 minutes.
  • While meatballs are baking, combine sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. If sauce begins to boil, reduce to a simmer to keep warm until meatballs are done.
  • Serve meatballs warm from the oven and spoon generous portions of the sauce over them.
