Make Callum's Spiced Lentil 'Meatballs' made using Ben's Plant Powered Spicy Lentil as well as lots of other delicious ingredients. They're super easy to make and the perfect mid week dinner!


Blitz the pouch of Ben’s Plant Powered Spicy Lentil Stew with the plant-based mince, spices and salt and pepper in a food processor. Shape that mix into balls, however big you’d like, size doesn’t matter, then put it in the oven for 20 minutes at 200°C.

Whilst that’s happening, grate the garlic and the ginger and fry that in a large frying pan on a low heat until golden. Dollop in the mango chutney and tomato paste along with about 70ml of water. Let it reduce to a sticky, tomato-ey sauce and pop it into a small jar.

Get the “meatballs" out of the oven and pop into the large frying pan. Crank the heat up to a medium and pour the mango-ey sauce over them, turning gently to make sure they’re all evenly coated.

Finally, pop your Ben’s Wholegrain Rice pouch in the microwave and cook per on-pack instructions.

Serve it up. Rice in bowls first, then the sticky “meatballs”, a few sprigs of fresh coriander and a squeeze of lime juice completes this. And go enjoy it, especially if your name is Ben.
