Veggie Balls: A Super Satisfying, Nutrient-Dense Alternative to Meatballs!
Veggie burgers are fairly ubiquitous these days, but they can be challenging to make at home. They tend to fall apart either during preparation or cooking, and the resulting frustration can be enough to make anyone never want to cook them again. Veggie balls, however, essentially smaller, near-bite size veggie burgers, are easier to prepare, store, and portion out (especially for children!). They’re more versatile too, serving as a perfect topping for salads or macro bowls, a great filling for tacos or wraps, or an awesome snack all on their own with a side of hummus or salsa. Keep a batch on hand in the freezer for a quick week night meal (or an easy meat replacement if you avoid meat and the rest of your family is eating it for a meal). They’re similar in appearance and taste to falafel, but since they’re baked instead of fried, they’re better for you.
