Black Bean Meatballs with Mushrooms
These black bean meatballs with mushrooms are one of the simplest variations of meatless vegetarian meatballs, and they are packed with plant-based protein and nutrients.
Four vegetables (black beans, mushrooms, carrots, and onion) serve as the basis of these meatballs. Beans and mushrooms work really great together, they make a meat-like texture and are very healthy and filling . Oats and egg bind the mixture together, so it becomes possible for the meatless balls to be firm enough and not fall apart while cooking. This recipe makes approximately 20 meatballs.
Cooked black bean meatballs with mushrooms can be an appetizer on their own, however they may seem a bit dry without any sauce. We recommend to serve them with some homemade marinara or gravy, or even cranberry jam! These meatless meatballs taste best in tandem with whole wheat pasta dishes, mashed sweet potatoes, or even on a bed of salad greens.
