Lentil Meatballs Recipe of of 24-04-2013 [Updated 17-01-2014]

The recipe for lentil meatballs was born to dispose of the boiled lentils that I had cooked in abundance for Elisa, I added a boiled potato that I had left over from the day before, a little pecorino to give a spicier flavor and here are some vegetarian meatballs and different from the usual;) In reality I did not believe that these lentil meatballs were so tasty nor that everyone appreciated them, and instead they are all finished, if you do not want to fry, you can also prepare them in the oven by cooking them for about twenty minutes to 180 degrees so as to be even healthier food. I take advantage of this post to thank you all for yesterday, there was a beautiful festive air on the site and all your wishes and your messages really filled my heart with joy, thank you thank you: *
