    magpie diner's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe found at That one uses a whole 2 cups worth of soy creamer...granted, that would make it deliciously creamy, I tried to lighten that up a bit (you could adjust the broth-creamer ratio as you wish). I also changed the meatballs up by using TVP instead of a packaged sausage product which we just can't find where I live.

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl combine the breadcrumbs with the soy or rice milk. Set aside. Heat up the vegetable broth in a pyrex measuring cup and then add in the dry TVP. Mix together well and let the TVP absorb for a few minutes. While that sits, dice up your onion.
    2. 2
      Mix together the breadcrumb mixture with the TVP, about 2 tbsp of the onion. the parlsey flakes, garlic powder, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Adjust the salt to taste as it will really depend on how seasoned your veggie broth is. You want the mixture to hold together when formed into a ball in your hand - you may need to add a little extra broth, maybe a few tablespoons. I find pushing down with the spoon as you mix helps to combine everything. Form into balls, 1 1/2 inches in diameter (should yield 12).
    3. 3
      Heat up the oil in a saute pan, add in the "meat" balls and brown on all sides as best you can. When complete, place them into a casserole dish and set aside.
    4. 4
      Put your oven on to 350 degrees.
    5. 5
      Clean out your saute pan of any bits and then return to medium heat. Saute the rest of the onion and the mushrooms for about 5 minutes until the onions are translucent.
    6. 6
      In a bowl whisk together 1/3 cup soy creamer (or more if you choose) with the corn starch. Mix in 1 1/2 cups veggie broth, or less if you're using more creamer, along with the nutritional yeast and a pinch of nutmeg.
    7. 7
      Pour the broth mixture into the pan with mushrooms & onions, bring up to a gentle boil, stirring well to get a smooth sauce. Turn heat down and let it simmer for just a few minutes. Add in some braggs for flavour or colour if you choose.
    8. 8
      Pour the gravy over the meatballs and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until bubbly. Serve over noodles or mashed potatoes.

      I guess if I was a vegan, I might rate this a 5.....but I am definitely a carnivore, so I missed the texture and taste of meat! That being said, they have a very nice taste. I had some whole nutmeg that I ground up, and used fresh parsley. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT6 Zingo by and Unruly Under the Influence.

      I tried TVP or nutritional yeast once before and found that it works well in all kinds of recipes. This was no exception. It was nice to get away from the meat and chicken recipes for one day. And this was one recipe that worked well for the family.

      My DH and I are not vegans but we do eat mostly chicken and tofu so I thought trying a recipe with TVP might be another alternative we could add into our diet. We were pleasantly surprised by the flavor of this meal. I followed the recipe exactly and added quite a bit of salt, pepper, and Braggs to the sauce at the end. The "meatballs" seemed a bit soft but the flavor was great. I don't know if this was my fault or if the TVP/bread crumb combo just creates that soft texture. That was my DH's only negative comment. He even asked for a slice of bread to sop up all his left over sauce. Thanks for taking me on a new culinary experience!
