My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 cups bread, torn into small pieces
- 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1/2 cup oats, quick-cooking
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 2 teaspoons vegan chicken seasoning (Chicknish, Butler's Chick-Style, or other)
- 16 ounces extra firm tofu
- 1/2 cup water (if needed)
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.
- 2Add seasonings and mix until combined.
- 3Drain tofu and crumble with hands into the meatball mixture, mix.
- 4Add soy sauce and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
- 5With clean hands, roll about a tablespoon's worth of mixture into a ball. If it is too dry to stick together, up to 1/2 cup water can be added. (I don't ever have to add water.).
- 6Continue to roll mixture into balls, and place onto a greased baking sheet, an inch or two apart. I use a cookie dough scoop to get mine a uniform size.
- 7Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes (depending on size), until nicely browned.
- 8Cool and transfer to container or bag for freezing, or serve hot as desired.
- 9(These work well as appetizers, or as part of a main dish with barbecue sauce, brown gravy, vegan stroganoff sauce, or Asian sauces.).
