Vegan Soybean MeatballsThese meatballs are my copycat recipe of the Gardein meatballs. They are delicious, roll up beautifully, and do not crumble while cooking.

Makes about 30 (1-inch) meatballs.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 c cooked soybeans, drained
  • 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp miller's wheat bran
  • 2 Tbsp gluten flour
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp dry minced onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp barley malt extract
  • 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp ground annatto
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, ground

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, pulse all ingredients together a few minutes, or until a coarse but cohesive "dough" comes together.
  2. Scoop up bits of dough and roll them between your palms to make 1-inch meatballs.
  3. Pour 2-3 Tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat until hot. Place the meatballs in the hot oil and fry briefly, rolling them over with a spoon until browned on all sides.
  4. Serve with pasta and marinara sauce, or use for Swedish meatballs or meatball sandwiches.
