Remember last week when I mentioned having a bunch of this and that left over, and I was forced to find new recipes to use up what I had? Well, this is one of them: Kidney Bean Meatballs. I did some research on how to make a bean burger, especially out of kidney beans, and since I had so many left over from the night before's dinner, I needed something that was going to use them all up and go well with the next night's spaghetti. So, meatballs it is! This recipe has a few components that I found you could use for ingredients, so don't get confused if I say 2 or 3 items for something. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
1. kidney beans, drained and rinsed well (I had about 3 cups from the night before's dinner, made from dried beans)
1. Preheat oven to 425
2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl to the desired consistency. I used a food processor to mash everything together until it was slightly lumpy.
3. Form into 1 inch balls and place on a lightly greased (olive oil) pan or stone
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping over once about halfway through.
Easy as that! It was GOOOOOD, my kids loved it, and it was good for everyone.
