With my website I hope to inspire people to eat less meat, and I love showing everyone how easy vegetarian recipes can be. All dinner recipes on my blog are vegetarian and easy to make. This recipe for vegetarian balls with courgett and mozzarella is a great example of an easy veggie meal. You only need 4 ingredients and some herbs. The time you actually need to spend working on this recipe is also very limited. It’s mostly waiting while it simmers or while it’s in the oven. Perfect for busy days when you’ve got much more to do than only cooking.
I love serving these vegetarian balls with courgette and mozzarella in small skillets, so every person has got its own pan. But you can also make a big pan and put it in the middle of the table so that everyone can dig in.
Besides vegetarian, this recipe is low-carb.

Got some mozzarella left-over? Use it to make Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms.
