Delicious, hearty vegetarian meatballs ready in under 30 minutes. Perfect for any meat eater or vegetarian!
- 2 cups brown rice Cooked
- 1½ cups Quaker Quick Oats
- ½ cup chopped onions
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp garlic
- 3 tbsp italian seasoning
- ½ cup pecorino cheese or parmesan
- 1 cup chopped mushrooms
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 jar of pasta sauce *
Cook the rice first. Chop up mushrooms, parsley, onions, garlic and shred cheese if needed. Add to a bowl and stir up with all other ingredients (garlic, rice, oats, seasoning). Do not add eggs in until step 3 - 4
Add to a food processor and pulse.
Add in the eggs and pulse some more. You may need a spatula to clean of the sides and pulse some more. Mixture should still have texture to it.
Use a scoop to form 1-inch balls and place on a cooking sheet, if batter is too sticky, coat your hands in olive oil to help. Bake on 350 for about 20 minutes.
*Use any sauce you prefer for these meatballs. I enjoy them with red sauce.
Keep an eye on the cooking time, oven temps vary greatly. They will be a light golden brown when finished.
