Recipe – 10min prep / 35min cooking time
Let’s start by preparing the couscous.
Put the raw couscous in a deep mixing bowl, and add enough hot water to cover.
Cover the bowl with a cloth and a lid and let it sit until it absorbs the water and swells.
Tip: If you don’t have time to wait, boil and drain couscous like making pasta.
Now put chickpeas, garlic cloves, half an onion, parsley, paprika, tamari, salt, and pepper in a food processor.
Pulse until combined.
Now you will have a mixture that looks just like a dough and can be shaped.
Now preheat the oven.
Break off pieces from them in the meatball size and roll them with your hands.
Grease a tray with very little oil.
Recommendation: If you do not want to use any oil, you can use parchment paper instead of grease the baking tray.
Place the meatballs on the baking tray, then let them bake for 30 minutes.
Get a wok pan.
Preheat and pour hot sauce into it.
Add soy sauce, some black pepper, brown sugar, and cornstarch.
Cook for a short time and place the meatballs out of the oven into the sauce.
Mix well and garnish with scallions or chopped fresh parsley.
Here’s all you need to do.
Serve hot and enjoy.
Ways to Make Vegan Chickpea Meatballs Recipe Freezer Friendly
One of the best things about this dish is that it is freezer friendly. You can freeze them in 3 separate stages:
- If you wish, put the well-combined mixture in the food processor directly into the freezer. After thawing when you want to consume, continue the rest of the process by following the recipe instructions.
- If you want your work to be easier after you take it out of the freezer, give the combined mixture meatball shapes and then put it in the freezer.
- For even easier, put it in the freezer after baking and leave the dressing as the only job.
This incredible recipe, which will take its place on your dinner table easily and quickly without having to worry about a lot of dishes, will be very useful for you.
It is also ideal for hosting a crowd by multiplying the ingredients equally. You can prepare a green salad on the side or cook some rice.
Preferably, add some peas after cooking the rice, and please do not hesitate to share your ideas with us in the comments after making this glamorous menu.
