Domesticity Log, no. 6 | Bean "Meat" Balls

  • 2 cups dried white beans, soaked overnight (or, 1 1/2 15oz cans Cannellini Beans, drained & rinsed)
  • 1 small jar roasted red peppers, rinsed, or 1 fresh red pepper if in season
  • 2-3 stalks green onion, chopped (or 1/2 medium yellow onion)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano (I used much more than this, however)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Thoroughly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine beans, red peppers, onions, & garlic in a food processor.  Pulse until chopped, but not smoothly pureed.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and stir in oregano, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, & pepper until well combined.
  4. Form "meatballs" by rolling roughly 2 tablespoon-sized portions between the palms of your hand.  Place balls on the baking sheet, spacing evenly.
  5. Bake until the "meatballs" are firm to the touch and light golden brown, 15-20 minutes.
  6. Use with pasta recipes or in subs.
