INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prep the vegetables

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the cashews in a small bowl and add ½ cup hot water. Let nuts soak for at least 10 minutes. Bring a small saucepan of salted water to a boil for the orzo. Roughly chop the mushrooms. Peel and mince 1 clove garlic.

2
Start the meatballs

In a blender, pulse the rolled oats and walnuts until they are coarsely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the chopped mushrooms to the blender and pulse until finely chopped, then add to the bowl. Add the minced garlic, 1 tbsp of the red miso paste, sambal and a pinch of salt and pepper to the bowl and stir to combine.

3
Bake the meatballs

With your hands, form the mushroom mixture into 6 meatballs and add to a baking sheet. Drizzle the meatballs with 1 tbsp vegetable oil and carefully roll them on the baking sheet to coat them in the oil. Bake, until browned, about 20 to 22 minutes.

4
Prepare the sauce

Add the whole wheat orzo to the boiling water, stir, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Zest the lemon and set zest aside. Add the cashews and their soaking water to the blender along with the roasted red peppers, remaining red miso paste, remaining clove garlic, and 1 tbsp lemon juice. Blend on high until smooth, taste, and season with salt and pepper.

5
Season the orzo

Once the orzo is cooked, drain, and return to the saucepan off the heat. Roughly chop the basil leaves and add to the orzo. Add the green peas, lemon zest, 2 tsp olive oil, and the remaining lemon juice. Season the lemon basil orzo with salt and pepper and stir to combine.

6
Add the finishing

Add the roasted pepper sauce to a small skillet and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Divide the lemon basil orzo between large plates and top with miso-walnut meatballs. Drizzle with warm roasted pepper sauce. Mangia!
