This week for #SundaySupper it’s all about unprocessed foods. The definition of “unprocessed” can be intrepreted differently by many people. To me it is homemade food made with whole ingredients that have not been through a process of preservatives. My Moms Homemade Vegetarian Meatballs fit this bill quite nicely for me.
Today’s #SundaySupper is brought to us by Foodie Stuntman – thank you so much for hosting!
While my mom was a vegetarian, my dad was not. So, we always had a great variety in our home. I admit, my preference was the vegetarian food. To this day I crave things my mother made more than I ever crave a steak.
These meatballs are made with whole, unprocessed ingredients. You can serve these with a homemade tomato sauce or a homemade mushroom gravy. Both ways are very delicious! They are made with nut meal, eggs, cheese, bread crumbs or crushed crackers and seasoning then baked or fried. I choose to bake mine to elimiate the grease factor.
For anyone who is not a meat eater, and you think that these meatballs would just not cut it for you, I need to let you know that my die hard meat and potato husband came into the kitchen when I was making these. His words….and I am not going to exactly quote because they weren’t so kosher…were: “I had to come out to the kitchen because something smells *expletive* good!” Case closed. 🙂 He had done himself in because he just told me my vegetarian meatballs smelled good so I could tell him what it was. After saying those words, he had no choice but to eat them. 😉
