How to Make Vegan “Meatballs”

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!

I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment!
