I’ve been meaning to create a good Neatball for a while now and these Vegan Sweet Potato and Popped Lentil Neatballs are my debut appearance, and what a neatball to start with.
Following the success of my Dukkah Roasted Carrots with Popped Lentils I thought it was about time to bring out the next in the popped lentil line up!
GRAIN FREE VEGAN NEATBALLS
Unlike many neatballs which often contain grains, these vegan neatballs are grain free. The roasted sweet potatoes do the binding job all by themselves and by roasting aka ‘popping’ the lentils first you get this incredible texture. Soft and crispy… YES please!
The wonderful umami taste of these Vegan Sweet Potato and Popped Lentil Neatballs comes from the addition of coconut aminos (a nutrient amino acid rich juice that comes from the sap of the coconut tree), dijon mustard and my homemade one minute spice oil.
WHAT’S BEST TO SERVE THESE VEGAN SWEET POTATO AND POPPED LENTIL NEATBALLS WITH?
These Vegan Lentil Neatballs can be enjoyed as a main meal served with your favourite salad, slaw, greens or mash, or enjoyed as a snack with hummus and if you eat grains, some pitta chips.
I hope you enjoy them guys.
