Sweet Potato Black Bean “Meat” Balls Print 1 LikeDislike By Jennifer Combs Quite possibly my favorite meatless “meat” balls. I love the combination of creamy sweet potato, hearty black beans, buttery walnuts, and fragrant Italian parsley in these Sweet Potato Black Bean “Meat” Balls. I shallow fry these so they get a nice crispy exterior that complements the smooth avocado cream and rice.Parsley is one of those herbs that I never hesitate to buy fresh because I use it so much. I love how vibrant it is; It plays off the garlic, chili powder, and cumin so well in this recipe. Nature’s Greens bunched Italian parsley is also delicious over roasted potatoes, mixed into homemade dressings and sauces, and great for a beautiful garnish.Anytime I can create a plant-based meal that satisfies on taste, fills me up and brings as much comfort as traditional style foods, I mark it up as a winner in my book. And these vegan “meat” balls are certainly up there. I hope you try them for yourself!
