How To Make Vegan Chickpea Meatballs?

  3. Drain the chickpeas & pinch the skin off as many as you have the patience for.
  4. Blend chickpeas and mushrooms in a blender until broken down.

  6. Mix together the chickpeas and flax seed eggs. 
  7. Mix in the remaining ingredients. If the mixture is too sticky, add more breadcrumbs half a tablespoon at a time. If too dry, add a little chickpea liquid or oil.
  8. You want a consistency that will be easy to roll into balls without sticking to your hands or cracking.
  9. Form the chickpea mixture into meatballs and place onto a greased or parchment-lined baking dish.
  10. In a 450 degree oven, bake the chickpea meatballs for 20-25 minutes, turning over halfway through. They will be golden and crispy on the outside when done.
