"Oh. My. Yum. Vegan Meatballs"

There is a new adjective in Michelle's Thesaurus of a brain ... yup, that's right... the wheels were totally a-turnin' on this one: "Oh. My. Yum."

Seriously though, who literally says that out loud when they eat something so savory, so delicious, so so good?

I don't see any hands.  Well, I guess I'm crazy  {Did I hear you say you already thought that?!}.  Because I couldn't stop saying that phrase when I ate these (vegan) meatballs and soon enough you'll find yourself saying the same phrase.  They are that good.

By now my household is about 90% vegan.  No cheese.  No dairy.  No meat.  We only eat seafood once in a blue moon and organic eggs.  Honestly I feel great.  And am learning that it is SO true that your physique is 80% diet.  But that should be a post for another day.

Instead let's focus on how completely satisfying and mouth-wateringly scrumptious these meatballs are. And healthy.  Pair these with spaghetti squash and spinach tomato sauce and you will be in heaven.  

Dear "Real" Italian comfort food... move on over because you have some major competition here. 

"Oh. My. Yum. Vegan Meatballs"  adapted from the veggie nook

1 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
3/4 cup nutritional yeast
3/4 cup sundried tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp oregano (I didn't measure, just shook a whole bunch in)
1 tsp fennel seeds (same, didn't measure)
red pepper flakes
dash sea salt
1-2 Tbsp water
1.  Blend sunflower seeds in Blendtec or food processor until it resembles coarse flour
2.  Add all ingredients except for water.  Blend together.
3.  Add water to help ingredients stick together if needed.
4.  Roll into little balls and eat.  Or refrigerate for later snacking!
