Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C. For the meatballs, mash the cooked and rinsed lentils in a medium sized bowl or pot. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Line the baking tray with baking paper. Form the no-meat balls with your clean hands and place on the baking tray.
  • Bake for approx. 10-15 minutes, then flip and bake another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and relatively firm.
  • While the balls are baking, heat the coconut oil in a medium sized frying pan and cook the diced onion until golden brown. If you don’t want to sue oil, cook the onion in a few tablespoon water until tender.
  • Add paprika powder and mix well. Then quickly stir in the passata and cook for about 15 minutes, until is has thickened up considerably.
  • Add the remaining spices and the water and mix well. Bring to boil again and let simmer for a few more minutes.
  • When the balls are finished, add them to the sauce and gently cover them with it, don’t let them cook in the sauce. Serve with some freshly chopped herbs like oregano or basil 🙂
