Sweet & Sour Meatballs with charred Brocolli:
I had lots of fun making & creating this dish. I found all the ingredients in my pantry, & I hopefully you can find most of them in yours too ?I used lentils as a base for the meatballs & tried to impart lots of umami goodness. Happy Sunday foodie friends, Happy Easter for those that celebrate, & hoping that you find a bit of joy & peace during your day.
What you need: for the sauce: 1/4 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, 2 tbl tomato paste, 2 tbl vegan Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbl maple syrup, 2 tbl low sodium soy sauce, 1/2 in grated ginger, black pepper to taste The Meatballs: 1 cup sliced mushrooms, 1 tbl sesame oil, 1 in grated ginger, 2 garlic cloves minced, 4 green onions finely chopped, 1 1/2 cups brown/green cooked lentils (reserving 1/2 cup for after processing)1/4 cup sunflower seeds (or seed of choice), 2 tbl vegan egg replacer, 2 tbl tomato paste, 1/3 cup panko, 3/4 lbs broccoli cut into even sized florets, drizzled with sesame oil, salt to taste
1️⃣On stovetop, combine sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan, heat over med 5-7 min till sauce thickens. Set aside.
2️⃣In food processor, pulse mushrooms till crumbly. Next, heat sesame oil, sautée mushrooms till brown on med heat 5-7 min, add ginger & garlic, cook 1 min till fragrant
3️⃣ Add mushrooms mix & the rest of meatball ingredients (except reserved lentils & panko) Pulse, scrape down sides, pulse again till you can form the mix into a ball. Place in bowl, mix in reserved lentils, then refrigerate 1/2 hr.
4️⃣ Next, mix in panko, & form meatballs (about 1 1/2 in ) Place on oil misted parchment paper on a large sheet pan, along with prepared broccoli florets. Brush meatballs with about 1/4 of sauce mixture. Bake meatballs until firm and slightly darkened at 375 F 20-30 min shaking pan half way through
