Lentil Meatballs
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flaxseed and water to make the flax egg. Set aside.
  2. In a medium pot, cook the lentils according to package instructions until tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked lentils, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, minced garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and paprika.
  4. Add the flax egg to the mixing bowl and mix well, using a fork or your hands to break up any large lentil pieces and combine all ingredients.
  5. Form the mixture into small meatballs, using about 2-3 tablespoons of mixture for each one. You should get around 20-24 meatballs.
  6. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until browned and crispy. Work in batches, if needed, to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  7. Remove the meatballs from the pan and set aside on a plate lined with paper towel, to soak up any excess oil.
  8. Serve the lentil meatballs with tomato sauce and pasta, rice, or any other side dish you like.
Tomato Sauce
  1. In a large non-stick pan, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté for a few minutes, until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  2. Add the tomato passata, dried basil, salt, and pepper to the pan. Stir well to combine.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for 10-15 minutes, until it thickens and reduces slightly.
  4. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning, if needed.
  5. Once ready, serve the tomato sauce with the lentil meatballs and pasta, rice, or any other side dish you like.
