Hi. In this recipe, is there something I can sub for the wheat gluten? Or leave it out? I eat a low-oxalate diet, so I should avoid it.


Vegetarian Meatballs (aka Beanballs)

1 C Garbanzo Beans
2 Tbs Olive Oil, plus more for frying
1/4 C Vital Wheat Gluten
1/8 C All Purpose Flour
1/2 C Breadcrumbs
2 Tbs Tamari or Soy Sauce
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp (or 1/2 tsp dried) Fresh Parsley
1 tsp (or 1/2 tsp dried) Fresh Thyme
1 tsp (or 1/2 tsp dried) Fresh Basil
1/2 tsp dried Oregano
1/4 C water
Mash beans and 2 Tbsp olive oil in large bowl, leaving some lumps. Stir in remaining ingredients. Knead 2-3 minutes or until well incorporated and sticky. Shape into bite-size balls. Heat oil over medium heat. Cook beanballs approximately 7 minutes or until browned, turning only once or twice. Yields 8.
