This was an amazing recipe. The flavour improved by the day. I made the balls with a rich tomato/garlic sauce and it was raved about. I did make some changes as my family does not eat cheese. So I subbed a can of brown lentils and only used finely ground oats to replace the cracker crumb and I also used walnuts as that is what was on hand. The mixture was quite wet but after leaving in the fridge for a little while it firmed up to form the balls. Everyone wanted the recipe. Thank you so much for posting it is a reall winner for vegetarians.
Try subbing beer for the water.
I have never said anything tasted liked real meat, but these really did! Amazing! I will never use another recipe again. I used vegetable broth, and I sprayed the meatballs with olive oil cooking spray while they were baking to help them brown. I also used a different sweet and sour sauce. I am looking forward to using these in spaghetti and meatball subs. Thank You for sharing this recipe!
These are great! My husband had a hard time figuring out whether or not there was meat in them or not. I chose to add a few more seasoning such as minced garlic and poultry seasoning for a different flavor and they came out wonderfully. I will definately make these again!
I tried this for the Cook-a-long game and I'm so glad I did! These "meatballs" were so good! I halved the recipe. I used "chicken" type seasoning for the broth powder. Yummy! Thanks for posting! Even the meat eaters liked this one!
