Lentil Meatballs! This is one of our favorite recipes at The Real Food Academy. The first time we rolled it out on a Saturday Cooking Class, the kids where a little apprehensive due to the fact that they where mixing lentils and oats, one of them even said that it was weird to mix the "lentils from their grandmas soup and the oats from the morning breakfast" (LOL!) To their surprise(not mine), the meatballs where delicious and they in fact ate them all! I have used this recipe for meatless meatballs in subs, tacos(exchange the marinara for fresh taco salsa) and alone as part of the dishes in a cocktail party. By omitting the meat and serving this recipe with Raw Zucchini spaghetti your are serving a light and flavorful "pasta" dish that is rich in iron, Lycopene and beneficial enzymes.
Let food be thy medicine...
Antioxidants in general, prevent the accelerated oxidation process in your cells which can cause the onset of Cancer. This soup is a lighter version of your regular Tomato Soup and is packed with the strong antioxidant Lycopene!
Lycopene has been found to aid in the prevention of certain Cancers and also maintains the health of the cardiovascular system. You can find it in red pigmented fruits and vegetables and when cooking your tomatoes, the absorption of Lycopene in the body is even higher.
You can make this soup thicker or thinner depending on your taste. When using fresh tortellini, make sure that they are not over cooked. Prepare your soup base first and then add the tortellini. You kids will lick their fingers with this delicious soup all year round and will be adding a strong antioxidant to their bodies which will aid their immune system!
Satisfy your pasta craving with this simple and classic dish. Kids and adults love Ricotta Stuffed Pasta Shells served with saute vegetables or baked fish. You can always add Spinach, roasted peppers or eggplant to the stuffing mix for more of a Mediterranean flavor.
