Meatless Meatballs! Celebrating the Magical Meatiness of Mushrooms onEarth Day

Posted on

















Ingredients for 16 small meatballs:


(recipe can easily be doubled!)


1 pound white mushrooms, chopped into very small pieces


2 tbsp olive oil


pinch of salt to sauté mushrooms


1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup minced onions


4 minced garlic cloves


1/2 cup instant oatmeal


1/2 cup breadcrumbs


packed 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley


1 ounce by weight, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, very finely grated on a microplane


(Note: it looks like a ton of cheese in the video, but it was only 1-oz. Because I used a microplane to grate it, it created a huge looking pile of cheese. It would be about 1/2 cup if you measure, but use weight for this ingredient!)


1 tsp salt


freshly ground black pepper and cayenne to taste
pinch of dried oregano


2 eggs


3 cups of your favorite pasta sauce.


*Let mixture sit overnight in fridge. Bake meatballs for 12-15 at 450 degrees F., then simmer in sauce for 30-60 minutes before serving.
