Firecracker Chickpea Meatballs

These chickpea meatballs pack a mighty flavor punch! Smothered in sweet and spicy firecracker sauce and served with a sprinkling of fresh chives, they’re perfect in a sandwich or for party snacking.

I didn’t invent the concept of firecracker meatballs. They seem to be a big thing in the world of non-vegan food, and I just decided it was time for a vegan version.
Usually firecracker meatballs are made with chicken and smothered in super spicy sauce. There’s really no specific recipe for the sauce ? some versions are similar to Buffalo sauce, some are Asian-inspired, and some are barbecue-ish.
How to Make Chickpea Meatballs
I went with one of my favorite chicken substitutes for my firecracker meatballs: chickpeas. “Chickpeas” sounds like “chicken” and that’s what makes them one of my favorite chicken substitutes. Brilliant, I know. Chickpeas also happen to make great vegan meatballs.
Start by placing your chickpeas into a food processor bowl, along with some panko breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, and a handful of seasonings.

Roll your chickpea ballsand place them on a baking sheet or in an oven-safe skillet. Lightly oil them so they brown, then bake them up!
While the balls bake you can heat up your sauce on the stove.
When the meatballs are done baking, pour the sauce over them.
