Here in the U.S, one of the most popular dishes in the IKEA cafeteria is their meatballs with gravy and mashed potatoes. So, it was exciting when IKEA started selling frozen Vegetable Balls that are not only vegan, but also soy-free and gluten-free.
These vegballs are GOOD! They are pretty meaty and I was impressed how the ball stays together without using any eggs. You will recognize all the ingredients used to make these vegballs. There is nothing artificial in them.
I made my own plant-based meal version of the cafe meatballs, gravy and mashed potatoes with some asparagus at home using the Vegetable Balls, and it was fantastic.
I made the gravy using a packet of Simply Organic Vegetarian Brown Gravy which is 100% plant-based, and added some chopped cremini mushrooms to my gravy. Pacific Foods also makes an Organic Vegan Mushroom Gravy.
The IKEA Vegetable Balls are also great with spaghetti and as an appetizer. The IKEA website also has some beautiful examples of dishes to make with the vegballs. I’ve never seen vegetable balls looks so gourmet.
