Ho Ho Ho boy do I love this recipe.. These healthy, delicious, plant-based stuffing balls are tender and perfect and delicious for any holiday table. Not only are they oil-free, but in my opinion, they just knock the socks right off the regular ol’ lentil loaf.. and they’re easier to make! It’s a win-win. Check out the recipe below and give these balls a shot!


~*~ RECIPE ~*~
1/2 bunch stemmed kale
5-6 mushrooms, diced
3 celery stalks, chopped small
1 small yellow onion, diced
1.5 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1.5 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon oregano
1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup oats
1 tablespoon ground flax
1.5 cups cooked lentils
1 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Bake for 45 minutes at 360°. They might need a little longer. They will firm up a bit as they cool.

Just found your videos the other day. I really enjoy them. I love that you eyeball everything. I'm that kind of girl. I can't give a recipe to anyone because I don't measure. I do what I feel looks and taste good to me. Thanks for sharing your videos. I will be making those jingle balls for sure.

Jean-Marie Odom says:

I don’t have kale at the moment and don’t want to go to the store. I do have some spinach. Do you think spinach might work in a pinch or would it be too mushy?

Happy C says:

Can you blend the nuts? I don’t have a food processor but I have a vitamix

Eileen Sauter says:

Ive watched this 3 times and you still crack me up!

The Speckled Egg says:

I am interested in that pan you sautéed the veggies in. Would you share the maker and name of it, please??? 🤔

Jefferent Jef says:

I am gonna sound like a douche here, but been watching your past videos, 3 years ago.
Then you have a video about counting calories, encourage not to count them, but just mind the macros and stay away from fat.
Vegan or not, you still have to be mindful and not to overeat to stay lean.
Sorry again, but you have been gained a fair bit of weight since i started watching your videos,.
Did you do it on purpose? Are you trying to bulk up?

Tom says:

I bet these will be great with your new marinara sauce!! Available in two delicious varieties!!! ❤️💚

Gayle Dickerson says:

Made these for dinner tonight. Really easy and delicious recipe and those jingle balls were fantastic with that cranberry sauce! Yum!

Grandma Charlene's Garden says:

The recipe in the notes does not have the rolled oats listed

Nonewhere Listens says:

What, no spices? no garnish? Santa, you be bad. Coal in your stocking.

Sarah Dee says:

Dylan, any reason we could not add some whole wheat bread crumbs just for the sake of holiday authenticity?

UndershirtSandwich says:

I am wondering if you are concerned with the arsenic content in rice?

Deborah Gray says:

Another winner 😁
