Meatballs are very versatile and can be used in a lot of ways. I will be sharing several recipes with meatballs soon, but wanted to show how to make the basic version first. First, you will need ground “meat,” and I explained how to make it with step-by-step photos in my post on How to Make Vegan Burgers . Follow that recipe through the mixing directions, then come back here.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and spray a baking sheet liberally with non-stick spray:
Use a number 40 scoop if you have one, or weigh 1 oz pieces, or measure 1 1/2 TBS for each “meatball.” A full recipe will make 64, but I only made half into meatballs so I got 32.
You need to firmly press the mixture into the scoop, or roll the mixture firmly into a ball in your hands:
If you are scooping or measuring, level off the scoop or measuring spoon.
Put the “meatballs” on your prepared pan:
Bake the “meatballs” at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, then let them cool for at least 15 minutes before using them.
Here is a close up:
Now, use the “meatballs” in your recipe. I stuck with the basics and made spaghetti and “meatballs”!
I also added some homemade vegan parmesan cheeze!
