Simple Lentil Meatballs (theblissfulbalance)

4 c cooked lentils
2 eggs
2 cloves garlic
1 T Italian seasoning
1 T dried basil
1/2 onion
2 1/4 c Italian breadcrumbs
2 t salt
1 t pepper
1 jar marinara sauce
2 T extra virgin olive oil

Add lentils, eggs, garlic, Italian seasoning, basil, onion, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper to a food processor. Process until completely smooth and no chunks. Roll meatballs into 1 1/2″ balls and place onto a baking sheet. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Gently place lentil meatballs onto the skillet side-by-side. Cook meatballs for about 10 min on each side. Pour marinara sauce into skillet, covering and mixing in with meatballs, cooking for about 5 min more. Serve over spaghetti and top with fresh basil. Note: You can also bake these instead of cooking in a skillet. Cook for about 15 min in a 400 F oven. Makes 25 meatballs.
