If you try nothing else from this blog, you must try this.
And if you try this recipe, you will probably never need to try another recipe again. 🙂
My idea for lunch yesterday was this gloriously, amazing, scrumptious, lentil ball sub. Delicious lentil balls bathed in Homemade Italian Onion and Garlic Tomato Sauce a top a whole wheat bun, sprinkled with monterey jack cheese and vegan parmesan cheese.
Sometimes I think that I am a genius! 🙂
Scrumptious Lentil Ball Subs with Vegan Monterey Jack Cheese
An excellent way to use leftover lentil balls from spaghetti night. That is assuming that you would actually have any leftover. 😉 I made a batch specifically for this scrumptious recipe.
Makes one sub, multiply portions as needed
- 1 six inch whole wheat sub bun or hotdog bun
- 3 lentil balls
- 1/2 cup Homemade Italian Onion and Garlic Tomato Sauce or your favorite pasta sauce
- 1/4 cup shredded vegan monterey jack cheese
- 1 teaspoon vegan parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the lentil balls together with the tomato sauce in a small bowl.
Spread the lentil balls and sauce onto the whole wheat sub or hotdog bun. Top with the shredded monterey jack cheese and vegan parmesan cheese. Bake for 7-10 minutes and broil an additional 3-5 minutes (watching carefully) to melt the cheese. Serve with a side salad or raw vegetables.
You can thank me later. 😉
Hmm…I have to try those lentil balls. Do you think green lentils would work? Also, I wonder if I could sub some raw wheat germ for some of the whole wheat bread crumbs, since my body can’t handle too many carbs at once right now. What do you think?
I am sure it would work out and still be good, but not exactly the same. The lentils would have to be boiled down until they are soft and have no lumps at all, not sure how long that would take with green lentils. I don’t use them very often. We love those lentil balls. I love red lentils in anything. Let me know if you do try it out. 🙂
These subs sound and look delicious, I’ll have to add them to my “to do” list.
That looks really tasty! I will have to try to make some of those lentil balls next week 🙂
Delicious food in your household as usual! Love the creative lentil balls!
