As you can see from the title, these can be called many different things! The important factors to note are:
1. They’re vegan
2. They’re mainly chestnuts
3. They’re yummy
Glad we cleared that up 🙂 Basically my kids love spaghetti and meatballs, so I attempted a healthy vegan version!
I’m learning so much at the moment about how to replace meat with nuts, seeds or pulses, AND create something my family will eat… thankfully these got a thumbs up from almost everyone (a 3/4 thumbs up from my kids with very sensitive palates is still pretty good when they’ve never had chestnut balls before!). My husband and I loved them and I’ll definitely be making these again, possibly as burgers to serve with homemade chips and salad, oh yes, another recipe is effervescing…
These are great served over brown rice spaghetti, with green beans, a tomato sauce and basil to sprinkle over – yum!
I’m particularly excited that I get this again for lunch tomorrow 🙂
