Veggie Meatballs


DJ veganized a vegetarian meatball recipe for Christmas dinner and then again at New Years Eve. It tastes amazing with garlic mashed potatoes and a big salad. It’s omnivore-approved!

1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1 & 1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground sage
