Vegan Lentil Meatballs In Curry Sauce Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 25 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 30 mins
1/2 cup red lentils
3 small potatoes, peeled and chopped , (about 300g or 10oz)
2 flax eggs
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1 tbsp tamari
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minched
250 g vine tomatoes
2 tsp garam masala
1 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tbsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
1Cook the red lentils for around 10 minutes, until they're soft but not mushy.
2At the same time, boil peeled and chopped potatoes until fully cooked through, which should take around 12-15 minutes.
3Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (400 F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
4Mash the potatoes when done, then add them to a large mixing bowl together with the cooked lentils and the flax eggs, red onion, tomato paste, turmeric, nutritional yeast, buckwheat flour and tamari. Mix everything together well.
5Then, roll the mixture into even-sized balls. Make sure your hands are slightly damp to prevent sticking. The measurements in the recipe card below are enough for 8-9 large meatballs.
6Arrange the meatballs on the baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until golden and crispy on the outside.
7While the lentil meatballs are in the oven, start preparing the curry sauce. Add the onion and garlic to a non-stick pan and cook for 2-3 minutes to soften.
8Add the tomatoes, garam masala, curry powder, turmeric and salt. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until fragrant and the tomatoes soften.
9Add the coconut milk and simmer, stirring frequently, over a medium heat for around 15 minutes.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
