Ingredients

  • 16 oz. mushrooms
  • 16 oz. can black beans drained
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion flakes
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a pan, cook the mushrooms with 1 Tbsp of oil for about 10 minutes (or until soft and browned).
  • Add in the drained beans and continue to cook for another 5 minutes (or until everything is soft).
  • In a food processor, lightly blend the walnuts until they are small pieces (but not ground).
  • Add in the cooked mushrooms and beans, then pulse to blend until the texture is well mixed (not overly mushy).
  • Place the mixture in a bowl and add in the spices and remaining oil.
  • Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Remove the mixture from the refrigerator, then roll into about 16 meatballs.
  • Place each meatball on an oiled baking pan, then spray with additional oil.
  • Bake the meatballs for an hour, taking them out halfway through to coat with more oil.
  • Serve with your favorite sauce and pasta!
