This recipe for baked red lentil meatballs with sesame is one of the simplest recipes you can make.
Lentils are a tender ingredient and you can make a lot of delicious dishes, but we decided on some meatballs, for which we used red lentils and Orlando’s white sesame from the Maestro range. It is a vegetarian recipe, but it can conquer even the most ardent meat lovers.
It is very quick to prepare and easy to make. The lentils boil in 15 minutes, and the meatball composition is ready in a few minutes. We preferred to bake them in the oven, not to fry them in an oil bath, just so that they could be eaten by as many people as possible, including children.
I served them with a green salad and a yogurt sauce and a few chilli flakes, but they also go very well with a mashed potato. They can also be taken as a package, for lunch at work.
