What’s for Dinner? Spaghetti and no meat meatballs

Recipe from Healthy Vegan Recipes. I’ve made this with the chickpeas as meatballs and the kidney beans. When I made it with the chickpeas I used 2 tablespoons of tomato juice and just 1 tablespoon flour (wanted to limit use of flour). For the kidney beans I believe I overcooked them because they were dry and I thought there was too much salt and thyme used. My toddler didn’t care for the meatballs but we both loved the sauce. I used 1 teaspoon salt (since I’m on a low sodium diet), 1 teaspoon oregano and added an overflowing 1/3 cup of nutritional yeast. I used whole wheat pasta but next time I make spaghetti I’m going to use zucchini as noodles, since I’m no longer eating gluten and I will definitely make the sauce again.

Update: Here are the chickpea meatballs with pasta.

What’s your favorite spaghetti and no meat meatball recipe?


I love to learn, and I consider myself to be a very fluid person so I enjoy taking what I learn and allowing it to make a difference in my life. My latest transformation has been eating healthier and working out. I never thought that I would be reaching for fruit when I crave something sweet and that I would actually look forward to going to the gym.
