Meatball subs, spaghetti and meatballs, sweet and sour meatballs, and meatball soup are some of the savory dishes that you can turn to in order to brave the cold winter. With all of the delicious vegan meatballs and vegan beef options available today, there’s no reason to support a horrendous industry that slaughters cows by the millions.

Here’s a list of our favorite vegan meatballs that aren’t only delicious but also cholesterol-free:

Beyond Meatballs Italian Style

These meatballs are juicy and perfectly seasoned. Serve them in a meatball sub or on top of a bowl of fresh spaghetti.

Gardein’s Meatless Meatballs

We love that three of these meatless meatballs pack 15 grams of protein.

The wait is over! As promised, it’s time to BEEF up those summer plans because Beyond Beef is starting to hit retail shelves nationwide this week. Beyond Beef is the first plant-based ground meat made without GMOs, soy or gluten to deliver the same culinary versatility, meaty texture and juiciness of traditional ground beef but with 25% less sat fat! Not only can it be used in virtually any ground beef recipe, but with marbling intended to melt and tenderize like beef, this new innovation is bound to satisfy vegans and carnivores alike.

Swedish Meatless Meatballs and Mushrooms with Sweet Potato Mash I should really call this Swedish-ish meatballs, because I used 365 meatless meatballs and put a lot of the flavors that would normally be in a Swedish meatball into the gravy instead (nutmeg, fennel seeds, black peppercorn…). But I loved it! No one else wanted anything to do with meatless meatballs (couldn't even get the kids to take a bite, and Paul was put off by the texture, which is more like bread than meat he says), but it hit the spot for me. So, I pretty much ate it all happily. I subbed with veggie broth and pea milk and of course added sautéed mushrooms to the recipe. I'll be doing this again just for me. #goddessgrub #sparkleandslay #shinelikeagoddess #livelikeaboss #theradiancemini #veganswedishmeatballs #365meatlessmeatballs #meatlessmonday #meatlessmeatballs #vegan #veganrecipes #veganfood #veganlife #veganeats #vegetarian #vegetarianrecipes #vegetarianfood #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #veganlife #veganlove #flexatarian #reducetarian #sweetpotatomash #mashedsweetpotatos
