Meal 1 for Aus VeganMoFo

To kick off the first vegan meal for Aus VeganMoFo tonight i made Spaghetti and Beanballs from VEGANOMICON.
I didn't have any kidney beans so i used cannellini or white beans instead.
Here they are being all mashed up.
Then i added the spices/gluten flour/breadcrumbs etc and kneaded it for a few minutes to give it a nice chewy texture. After this i rolled them into about 16 walnut sized balls.
I put them into a baking tray with some oil and rolled them around so they were nicely coated.
Then cooked them for about 15 minutes each side and they came out nice and golden.

While all this was happening i also has some fettucine cooking on the stove and a tomato marinara sauce simmering away.
Put all three together and what do you get? A delicious meal for 2 with plenty left over for tomorrow's lunch. I put some Parma-Almond Cheez on mine! Delish!!

Your balls look really great (tee, hee). Seriously, though, that looks like a really delicious meal!

I like the sound of that recipe...must try. I've had Veganomicon for ages but have barely made anything from it. Slack on my part!
