Some say meat, others say plants – we say BOTH! We love adding more plant-based options to our weekly rotation, but sometimes the family just wants some meat. So, why not do a little bit of both? These meatballs feature lamb AND tofu – so you can enjoy the meaty flavors with a little plant-based twist.
A plant-based diet doesn’t necessarily mean going full-on vegan. This recipe uses half of a plant-based protein (tofu) mixed with half of an animal-based protein (lamb) to create a delicious, balanced meal. Tofu certainly has a reputation for being bland (and, admittedly, plain tofu IS bland). Mixing tofu with animal meat, rich sauces, or flavorful spices will help make it taste delicious. In this recipe, the tofu absorbs the flavors from the lamb and spices – so you don’t even know it’s there! Try this recipe and see what you think – you might be surprised just how much you can like tofu!
