Meatless Meatballs

These are very good. You don't miss the meat at all. They are time consuming. I am going to play with trying to back them next time...I got the recipe from an online friend Liz.

Very tasty and when served w/ spaghetti & sauce there are 19g of protein per serving. this recipe is for 6 servings. Even good plain as shown above.

2 C cooked rice (white or brown)
1/2 C uncooked quick oats
1/4 C plain breadcrumbs (seasoned would be fine too)
1/4 C milk
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. italian seasoning
1 med. onion chopped (approx. 1/2 C)
1 tsp. garlic salt (could use fresh garlic if you have it handy)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 C. bread crumbs or wheat germ for dredging
oil for cooking.

whisk together egg and milk in a bowl. add other ingredients (thru cayenne pepper) and mix well with hands. gently shape into balls and dredge in bread crumbs or wheat germ. cook in a lightly oiled pan 4-5 minutes, shaking or turning frequently so they brown evenly.

this recipe makes approx. 12 large meatballs (2 in. diameter) or 16-20 smaller ones (1 1/2 in. or so in diameter).

    This sounds really good. I am 11 weeks pg right now and really struggling with alot of morning sickness. But when I feel better in a few weeks I am going to try there. Would you also mind if I added you to my friends? I would love to watch your website for new recipes and encouragement and begin my journey back into healthy living (I lost my way for a while there. Hence the intense morning sickness.)

    In His Grace,
