Feedfeed Tip Not sure what to do with the rest of that can of chipotles in adobo after you've opened it? Freeze it in small cubes and use it for future soups, chilis, stews, and stir-fries.
Lentils, oats, and mushrooms serve as the backbone for these hearty "meat" balls. Serve these with your favorite noodle (veggie noodles work, too!), grain, or green salad.

Feedfeed Tip Make sure you're using quick oats, versus old-fashioned rolled oats. Quick oats are slightly finer and won't provide such a gritty, tough texture like old-fashioned oats.

Feedfeed Tip For roasted potatoes that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, it can help to par-boil them before spreading them out on a baking sheet. Make sure the pot of water is heavily salted, and boil them until easily pierced by a fork.
