Join Chrissy Tracey as she makes vegan meatballs with a Marcella Hazan inspired tomato sauce. This recipe was actually inspired by Chris Morocco's (non-vegan) meatball recipe. Instead of using beef, Chrissy uses lentils as the mainframe of the meatball, mixed with oat milk-soaked bread. The oat milk adds a little more fat content to the recipe, giving the meatballs a much fuller taste.
Check out the recipe here:

1 medium sweet onion, quartered
2 garlic cloves, smashed
½ scotch bonnet pepper, seeded if desired
1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
5 Tbsp. plant butter
2 basil leaves
1 bay leaf
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Cashew Parmesan
1 cup raw cashews
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
¼ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
3 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed
¼ cup oat milk or other non-dairy milk
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
¼ cup parsley, roughly chopped
4-5 Tbsp. aquafaba (the liquid strained from one 15-ounce can chickpeas)
⅓ cup Cashew Parmesan
2 cups cooked lentils
¾ tsp. fennel seeds
2 tsp. kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
⅛ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. marjoram
¾ tsp. dried oregano
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
¾ cup breadcrumbs (preferably Italian)
2-3 Tbsp. olive oil, plus more
Cooked spaghetti
Cashew Parmesan
Flaky salt
Torn basil

Preheat your oven to 350°
0:00 Introduction
0:26 Make the sauce
3:10 Make the Cashew Parmesan
4:36 Make the meatball mixture
8:20 Form the meatballs, freeze for 5 minutes
9:00 Boil water for spaghetti
10:02 Sear the meatballs in olive oil
10:57 Bake the meatballs for 7-10 minutes
11:08 Transfer meatballs to pan with sauce, toss to coat, then remove
11:14 Cook spaghetti in salted water, transfer to pan with sauce, toss to coat
12:08 Plate and taste!

If using a stainless steel pot, do not add salt until the water is hot. Stir to disolve. If you put salt in the cold water, the stainless steel will pit.

ba USED to be interesting and inspiring, now it's becoming increasingly boring. Cooking should be fun, stimulating, inspiring and broaden your horizon. Taking a concept that EXCLUDES a large portion of possible ingredients as a starting point, might be trendy but is not what inspiring cooking is about.

As an Italian, some choices made me a bit uncomfortable: 1) we don't put butter in tomato sauce, we use olive oil 2) we don't throw spaghetti to the wall. I know, it's hard to believe. The cooking time is on the pasta's packaging (8 to 10 minutes) 3) that's a lot of salt for one recipe All the rest (editing, host, set) was amazing!

Also if you were really Italian you would know that you have to salt pasta water, it's the only way you can flavor it.
givememore4free 14 dögum síðan
You do realize that different Italian people do different things. Some Italian people actually put butter in their sauces. So if you're really Italian you would know that.

As someone who has had like 50% luck in the past when cooking lentils until they’re tender enough, can someone recommend a foolproof way to make them? Appreciate any advice!
catherine zadecka
catherine zadecka 19 dögum síðan
Personally I find soaking them ahead of time works best for me, I keep them in a bowl of water at room temp for a few hours and then drain, rinse add to a pot with a 1:1.5 ratio of lentils to water and simmer for 20 minutes. Check for doneness. If they've achieved the level of cooked you desire you can strain any leftover liquid. If they're not ready yet just keep cooking/add water if it's looking too dry. This recipe I think would also be pretty forgiving to overcooked lentils, just add more breadcrumbs if the mix seems too wet.

It's so sad to see how this channel took such a dive. I know mukbang channels who get more views than this. Bon App, you have no one to blame but your selves. Extreme accusations were made against you and you didnt defend yourselves. You let people believe that people were making editorial and pay decisions based on race, and thats an extreme and serious accusation. At no point did you address those accusations, so people were left to believe -- incredibly -- that there was some truth to it and they voted with their cursors. Too bad.

@Daniel Kool yeah i guess, but im just confused why people in the comments are SO pressed and go out of their why to comment why shes wrong about something as insignifigant as the name of a dish shes showing us?? whatever, its no big deal
Daniel Kool
Daniel Kool 22 dögum síðan
@Ann Coffey that’s the whole problem. Why replicate? It is a different product. Give it e new name. It’s not that hard is it? ‘Vegan lentil balls’ I mean, I don’t have problems with vegan or vegans. And I had al lot of respect for people making that choice. But calling something meat while it isn’t, just isn’t right. Just like it isn’t right the other way around.
Ann Coffey
Ann Coffey 22 dögum síðan
@Daniel Kool i feel like she called them meatballs because thats the name of the dish, regardless of whats in it. like if she just called them balls it wouldnt really make sense cuz shes trying to replicate the dish that is meatballs.

Yes, it is. What if I make a vegan recipe with meat in it?

They're just looking for anything to complain about at this point. They complain about the editing saying it's not wild enough, then they complain about the editing being too wild. These people just looking for anything at this point. Some people just come on here just to drop a dislike and a comment, not even knowing that helps the channel even though they're trying to destroy it.

Why do vegans and vego's insist on creating meatless versions of things. Be proud and call it something else, who knows, you might create the next meatball. People are more likely to try something they haven't heard of before over "Vegan version of a traditionally meat thing".

Twiga 23 dögum síðan
@Orynae with most spices (cumin, fennel) if you heat first and grind afterwards its more aromatic and flavourful. When you heat it beforehand, you are releasing some of the oils into the mixture. You can experiment on a batch, some fennel seeds without toasting and some lightly toasted and ground and see what you think.
Orynae 23 dögum síðan
Does it matter if they're heated before or after crushing? Genuine question, since the meatballs then get pan-seared and baked, with the fennel inside :o
