READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by NYGriego74

You really need to change the name of this recipe, lol... I made these for some guests one night and they literally spit some out from laughter. How about using the word "croquette" instead of balls? Sounds fancier (and less ends up on the floor from laughter!).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the sunflower seeds, cashews and peanuts in a blender and grind them.
  2. The size of the ground pieces is not very important, but make sure they are not too big.
  3. Place the ground nuts in a medium-sized bowl and add the bread crumbs, eggs, garlic, tamari, celery seed, and basil.
  4. Mix well and shape the mixture into walnut-sized balls.
  5. Place the tomato sauce in a large pot and bring to a gentle simmer.
  6. Drop the balls into the sauce.
  7. Cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
