Kidney Bean "Meatballs" ~VEGAN~

These meatless meatballs are awesome! I adapted this recipe from I also made yummy spaghetti squash to go with this recipe, and made a pepper/tomato sauce (I'll post the recipe for the sauce another time - its a secret for now)

1 can of kidney beans

1/2 red onion (fine dice)

1/2 cup of oats

1/3 cup of sunflower seeds

5-6 cloves of minced garlic

1-1.5 tbsp tomato paste

Salt & pepper for flavour

Fresh Oregano

Fresh Basil


  1. Mash the kidney beans with a potato masher in a med bowl.

  2. Sautée onions in olive oil for 4-5 mins then add the garlic and sautée for another 1-2 mins.

  3. Add the onion, garlic, and oats to the beans with tomato paste. Mix.

  4. In a blender/food processor, add the sunflower seeds and grind to a meal.

  5. Add the sunflower meal, oregano, and basil to the bowl. Mix everything in and then make little balls! You can make patties from this recipe too!

I pan fried them for 5 mins, but you can also bake them at 350F for 10-13 mins!
