Instructions

Prep
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Finely chop mushrooms. Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Drain, then rinse beans. Using a potato masher,mash beans in a large bowl until smooth. Set aside. Roughly chop parsley.

Cook mushrooms
2

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms soften, 3-4 min. Remove the pan from heat. Let mushrooms cool slightly, 2-3 min.

Make and bake meatballs
3

To the bowl with mashed beans, add mushrooms, cornstarch, half the garlic salt, half the parsley, half the Italian Seasoning and half the garlic puree. Season with salt and pepper, then combine. Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Arrange meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) over meatballs. Bake in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden and cooked through, 8-10 min.

Cook tomato sauce
4

While meatballs bake, reheat the same pan (from step 2) over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 2-3 min. Add crushed tomatoes, remaining garlic salt, remaining Italian Seasoning and 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until tomato sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Toast garlic bread
5

While tomato sauce cooks, halve ciabatta. Stir together 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) and remaining garlic puree in a small bowl. Arrange ciabatta on an unlined baking sheet, cut-side up. Brush garlic oil over ciabatta. Bake garlic bread in the top of the oven until golden-brown, 5-6 min.

Finish and serve
6

Add spinach to tomato sauce. Stir until wilted, 1-2 min. Divide tomato sauce between bowls, then top with black bean and mushroom 'meatballs. Sprinkle pine nuts and remaining parsley over top. Serve garlic bread on the side for dipping.
