  • 1 cup cooked green lentils slightly mashed
  • ½ cup bread crumbs sprouted bread
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup bbq sauce I used Trader Joe's All Natural BBQ Sauce


  • Cook the lentils according to the directions on the package (I cooked mine in vegetable broth with white wine vinegar and Trader Joe's Everyday Seasoning).
  • In a large bowl combine all the ingredients for the lentils, with exception of BBQ sauce.
  • Stir until well combined then place in fridge for 10 minutes.Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400˚ and line try with parchment paper.
  • Measure out fairly large spoonfuls of lentil mix and roll into a balls. Place all rolled meatballs on parchment covered tray.
  • Bake meatballs for 15 minutes, flip (this can be tricky), and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until crisp and firm.
  • While meatballs finish up, heat BBQ sauce in a small sauce-pan on stovetop. Once you remove meatballs from the oven, brush them with warm bbq sauce and serve.
  • We ate them both by themselves and in a bun, both delicious!


For the bread crumbs, I just toasted a piece of sprouted bread until it was nice and crispy, let it cool, then broke it into small crumbs.
