Vegan Spaghetti and Meatballs | Meatball Recipe

I get asked so often how I keep coming up with fun and exciting vegan dinner ideas. Honestly, it’s pretty darn easy! All I do is ask James what he feels like eating (vegan or otherwise) or ask myself the same question, and then veganize that dish!

That is how this Spaghetti and Meatless meatball recipe came to live as an easy go-to. This recipe features a super versatile vegan meatball recipe that can be used in spaghetti, or tossed in yummy sweet and sour as a passable and fancy Hors d’oeuvre. This meatball recipe is comprised of only the healthiest and most vegan friendly ingredients, and any true cooking vegan will most likely have most of these ingredients on hand!

The meatless meatballs are made using potatoes, brown rice, oats, mushrooms, onions, and of course some spices. This is also made entirely in a food processor, –with the exception of baking your meatballs obviously, keeping things quick and simple.

When you have your meatball mixture ready to go, I recommend coating your hands in olive oil to keep the meatball mixture from sticking to them as you roll out your balls. While those are baking those perfect balls, get your spaghetti and your sauce together. Use your choice of noodles for this spaghetti and meatballs recipe. Cook those following the ingredients on the package. For your sauce you can use any sauce you think is a good fit for the spaghetti and meatballs—but I have shared my favourite recipe for homemade marinara, worthy for any Italian Nona.

Plate your pasta, place several meatballs on the spaghetti and cover them with sauce. If you feel like getting fancy add a bit of fresh basil to the top. That completes this spaghetti and meatballs recipe, thank you for tuning in and don’t forget that sharing is caring. Invite some friends over to enjoy this meal with you.

    Delicious! Thanks for the inspiration.

    As an aside, I agree that making vegan versions of food is pretty easy. You really only have to understand the base components and ratios (roughly) to switch out the stuff you can’t have.

    Anyway, I just made vegan meatballs the other day, but they only sorta kinda turned out. It was an experiment on my part and they were really only good drenched in marinara or served cold with a side of ketchup. So my version needs work.

    I’ll have to give this recipe a go (but with a few tweaks to make it gluten free). The oats should be interesting, and probably provide a better bind (I used Irish Soda Bread crumbs my first go around).

    Ooh, and I just thought of making up butter chicken poutine and using this in place of the chicken (or tofu as I often use). *Drooling*

    Thanks for the recipes and inspiration!

    I made these and your veggie burgs the other night! Turned out very tasty! Think I left them in the oven a little long, but pretty good! The burger recipe was really good too! I find they taste even better the next day.
