    Preheat oven to 350° F. Heat oil in a pan over a medium-high heat and sauté garlic and onion for 2 minutes or until translucent.
    Then add mushrooms and lentils and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
    Transfer the mushroom mix into a food processor and add panko, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and onion salt. Process until the mix is well combined but still a little chunky.
    Take a cookie tray lined with parchment paper, and start rolling your meatballs into 2-inch-thick balls. Brush with olive oil then put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
    Sauté your onions with olive oil in a pan for 2-3 minutes. Add in your mushrooms and continue sautéing for another 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
    Add in all of your ingredients for the gravy into a sauce pan except for the cornstarch and your sautéed mushrooms and bring to a slow simmer. In a small bowl, make a slurry with your cornstarch and water and whisk until well combined.
    Slowly incorporate the slurry into the gravy while whisking constantly. Add in your sautéed mushroom mix.
    Serve over pasta or mashed potatoes and garnish with parsley.
