VEGGIE NUT BALLS

  • 1 cup Bread Crumbs or cracker crumbs.  Best if Whole wheat or whatever you have on hand
  • 3/4 cup Pecans finely chopped
  • 1 medium to small onion minced (1/2 to 3/4 cup depending on your onion preference)
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese grated  (I have used other cheese and that’s fine, although I think its better with the cheddar)
  • 2 beaten Eggs or egg substitute
  • 3-4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce (Annies vegan kind is great)
  • 1 T chopped fresh Parsley
  • 3/4 tsp ground Sage
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 3 T oil of choice for frying, in large non stick fry pan(if frying)

Add all in a large bowl and mix well.   If too dry add a bit more liquid, water or more soy sauce, Worcestershire a Tablespoon at a time.  I prefer mine drier, I squeeze the nutball mix in my hands till it sticks together, then roll.   Oil your hands and start rolling the balls as big or small as you want (LOL).  I prefer to fry the balls in olive oil til golden browned on all sides.  Or you can bake them for about 15 to 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven on a lightly oiled baking sheet.

Serve with your fav marinara sauce and noodles.

I yield about 27 nutballs.
