garlic lentils and chickpea meatballs

Delicious and velvety garlic-butter lentils make a perfect high protein meal that is easy to make, comforting and classy. If you’re looking to cut back on the added oils, just exclude them for a much lighter, less rich dish.

The Chickpea burgers rolled into meat balls, glazed and skewered, adds an elevated restaurant style to this dish, not to mention the added protein.

We loved this one and think you will too. You got this!
