Mmmmm…nothing gets the family running to the table quite like a big plate of beanballs. I assure you though, these balls taste way better than they sound. Truly. I couldn’t stop popping em. They are a new favorite of mine.

Cooking Time


Ingredients You Need for Cheezy BeanBalls [Vegan]

  • 1-15 ounce. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1/4 cup diced parsley
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • 2 heaping tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Prepare Cheezy BeanBalls [Vegan]

  1. Heat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with a nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Take the chickpeas and add to a food processor. Process until a thick mash is formed. Scrape down sides as necessary and leave a few chunks. (we aren't makin' hummus here!)
  3. Scoop the processed chickpeas into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix to combine. I found using my hands to mash together is the best way.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add oil. When pan is hot add in beanballs and sauté for 2-3 minutes on each side. You want to get a nice crisp on the outside.
  5. Once ready transfer the balls to baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Enjoy.

  1. wondering if you could eliminate the frying and just turn the oven up to 400 to 415? I have made this recipe twice and it is very good.
