Vegan Homemade Meatballs with Potatoes in Tahini Sauce is a lemony, family-friendly dish rich in fibers and low in potassium. Vegan Meatballs are full of tofu proteins and fibers that come from chia, aubergine and the rest of ingredients. It’s healthy due to the presence of different vegetables, and therefore easy for digestion too.

Grounded pepper together with lots of fresh parsley and rich creamy tahini garlic sauce  add amazing taste and perfect balance to the dish. The amount of ground pepper and salt can be enlarged, then the dish will have a more impactful, spicier taste.

Flavour of Vegan Homemade Meatballs seasoned with pepper goes perfectly along with potatoes and tahini sauce. Feel free to add more tahini, garlic, or lemon juice to sauce, if desired.
The flavor of Vegan Homemade Meatballs can be enhanced by adding extra amounts of pepper, salt and parsley, and the dish will not lose its original specific taste.

The amount of tahini for the tahini sauce can be increased as well as the amount of water for reducing the tahini sauce. In that case the dish should be roasted a bit longer to keep it’s  crispiness on top of meatballs and poatoes.

 

The dish tastes great too with addition of some fresh broccoli or cauliflower roasted along with potatoes.
