1 small onion
1 carrot
1 stall celery
5 cloves garlic
250g mushrooms
1 cup walnuts
3 cups lentils
2 tbsp ground flax
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (or oat flour for gluten free)
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp Rosemary
1.5 tsp thyme
1.5 tsp oregano
Salt & pepper to taste

😋 Finely dice your onion, carrot & celery & sauté in some olive oil for 5 minutes.

🍄Add in the garlic & mushrooms & cook for a further 2-3 minutes.

🥜 Pulse your walnuts in a blender or food processor until they break into tiny pieces then add in the lentils & pulse again. Scrape down the sides as needed.

🥄 Mix together the lentil walnut mix, sautéed veg, and the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl with your hands.

🙌Divide into at least 24 balls and place onto a greased baking tray. The smaller the better as they get crispier the smaller they are! If the balls are too big they may fall apart!

🔥 Bake @375f for 45 minutes until the meatballs are golden and crispy!

💜Enjoy on pasta, subs, salads, nourish bowls and more!
