YumUniverse Pantry to Plate Book Review + Heather Crosby's Italian-Style Lentil & Mushroom (Not)Meatballs
Last night I got to cozy up to a new cookbook by Heather Crosby, YumUniverse Pantry to Plate! I was instantly transported from all my worries into a land of cooking where I got to fall in love with Heather, her recipes and applaud in the end!
I love the concept of offering a template for the main recipe (ie: pancakes) and offering many ways to make it your own based on what you have. I love that! Then she even offers a few recipes after each template so if you don't want to mix and match, she has done it for you.
The book has wonderful tips, tricks, and is like a mini-school and guideline to vegan eating all in one place. I found it to be a revolutionary, brilliant new way to offer cookbooks! It is positive, empowering and the food is great too.
It was so hard to choose but we went with the Italian-Style Lentil & Mushroom (Not)Meatballs that were so flavorful and delicious! Plus, you can feel good eating them as they're made with so many healthy ingredients. I love healthy comfort food.
Heather has generously offered to share the recipe with all of you! The pic above shows how mine turned out, amaaazing! "Freaking delicious honey" raved Gerald!

Italian-Style Lentil & Mushroom (Not)Meatballs
Makes 20 to 24 Meatballs or 5 to 6 Full-Sized Burgers
Try these (not)meatballs nestled in a sub roll, served as an appetizer with a delicious dipping sauce (pages 28–33), or with roasted spaghetti squash and Maudie’s Tomato Sauce (page 32) for a pasta-free spaghetti and (not)meatballs that’s sooo good. You can shape them into burgers or sliders, too.
