VEGAN YUMMY FOOD. Recipe for spicy vegan zucchini and tomato stew with garlic and mint

If you love chickpeas, add those to turn this into a heartier vegan main dish. Serves 4.
Ingredients
2 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 enormous zucchini, cubed (6 cups of cubes)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste
2 cups cubed fresh tomatoes, seeded (do not peel), or 1 14-oz can chopped tomatoes
1/2 to 1 tsp agave nectar, to taste
Kosher salt, to taste
1 tsp fresh mint leaves, or 1/2 tsp dried mint

Directions
In a small (4-quart) tall-sided sauce pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and zucchini, and cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes, until the onions are translucent and the zucchini is slightly softened.
Stir in the garlic, cinnamon, cumin, cayenne and turmeric, and cook for 2 minutes.
Then, add the tomato, and stir well. Reduce the heat to simmer, and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Taste, and add agave nectar and salt, along with the mint. Continue cooking, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by half.

Serve hot or at room temperature, over brown or white rice. Or, cool completely, and refrigerate. Like all stews, this one tastes even better the second day.

Found this in my Zucchini patch today. Must have missed seeing it yesterday as it was a scorcher of a day. Zucchini grow so fast. The farmers say that if you walk around your Zucchini patch during the day you can hear the squeaking sound of them rubbing together as they grow. The large one is over a foot long and as fat as a mans arm :-). When they get that big we call the Marrows :-)

How to Make Lentil β€˜Meat’ Balls

When I made the Lentil β€œMeat” Balls, I served them with brown rice pasta with a simple marinara sauce. But we had so many left over, that the next time we ate them, we changed it up completely and served them with mashed potatoes and gravy. Equally scrumptious!

Lentil β€œMeat” Balls

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups dried lentils, rinsed and drained
4 cups water
Salt and pepper
Cooking spray or oil
Β½ red onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 zucchini, finely chopped
1 large carrot, grated
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup bread crumbs (or gf bread crumbs or corn flake crumbs)
2 tbs. ground flax seed
3 Tbs. gf Vegan Worcestershire sauce OR2 Tbs. soy sauce plus 1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. each paprika, garlic powder, Italian seasoning
2 Tbs. chickpea flour plus 2 Tbs. water

PREPARATION:

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the lentils and a pinch of salt and return to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and cook for about 20 minutes until the water is absorbed. Let cool and move the lentils to a large mixing bowl. Mash them with a fork, potato masher or your hands until they are completely mashed.

Heat a large skillet and add the oil or cooking spray. SautΓ© the onions for about 4 minutes until translucent. Add the zucchini, carrot, celery, garlic, salt and pepper. SautΓ© about 5 minutes until the veggies are tender.

Add the hot veggies to the lentils in the bowl. The heat will help soften the lentils. Add the parsley, bread crumbs, flaxseed, Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce and vinegar), and spices. In a separate little bowl or cup, put 2 Tbs. of chickpea flour.

Add 2 Tbs. of water and mix into a loose paste. This will act as a binder. Add the flour and water mixture to the bowl.

Mix everything well. Hands work best. If the mixture seems too loose, add more bread crumbs. If it feels too dry and tight, add water or non-dairy milk.

Heat the large skillet again with a tablespoon of oil. While it’s heating, form the lentil mixture into little balls. Wet your hands, scoop up about 2 Tbs. worth of the mixture (more or less depending what size you like your balls) and roll between your open hands until it is shaped like a ball. Let them rest for awhile (you can even refrigerate them) so they will hold their shape better.


Raw Lentil β€œMeat” Balls

Put the balls into the skillet and fry on medium heat for about 8 minutes. Turn them carefully with tongs or a thin spatula so that they brown on all sides. Cook them long enough to be sure they get cooked all the way through (that’s a great excuse to steal one and taste it Remove from the pan and serve however you choose.
Variations:
(1) instead of frying them in a pan, other ways to cook them include baking them in the oven or dropping the balls gently into a pot of tomato sauce and letting them gently cook. That’s the way I always used to make meatballs and they were always very soft and tender.

(2) if you want the balls zestier, you can change up the spices to include chili powder, Cajun seasoning or hot sauce. For an extra decadent treat, stuff the lentil mixture with some Vegan cheese while forming the balls. Then when you bite into one, you’ll get a mouthful of yummy, gooey cheese.
