Made with nuts, parmesan and bread crumbs, you’d never guess these savory balls were meatless or than anything this good came from an ex-boyfriend! FULL RECIPE BELOW!


1 cup almonds or walnuts, toasted
2 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp dried parsley
¼ tsp kosher salt
Black pepper
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 large eggs
28 oz (about 3 cups) marinara sauce of your choice
Flavorless oil, for frying
8 oz spaghetti, cooked according to package directions
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or basil, for serving


1.) In a food processor, combine the nuts and garlic and pulse to a coarse crumb. Add the parsley, salt, a few turns of pepper, Parmesan and breadcrumbs, and pulse to combine. Add the eggs and process until the mixture holds together in a ball. It may still look crumbly, but it should hold together when you squeeze it.
2.) Roll ½ tablespoon-sized balls, packing them just firmly enough so that they hold together. Place them on a plate or sheet of parchment paper.
3.) Warm the marinara sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat.
4.) In a skillet, heat ¼ inch of oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the balls, turning them, until they’re golden brown on all sides.
5.) Transfer the balls to the tomato sauce, and enjoy over spaghetti, topped with additional cheese and chopped fresh parsley or basil.

I watch the current TV show, Girl Meets Farm (or something very similiar to that), and get really annoyed with the ultra dramatics; this video is so much more enjoyable. Molly, I really hope you'll watch yourself & realize how much more enjoyable your behavior is.

Red Sauce, looks very unappetizing.

Eggs are technically chickens, and chicken is a peace of meat, right?

Adam McFarland says:

Meatless but they include eggs. Sounds like a complicated way to justify eating animals but okay.
