Recipe by worldmom12
READY IN: 50mins


  • 2
    cups bread, torn into small pieces
  • 34
    cup walnuts, chopped
  • 12
    cup oats, quick-cooking
  • 12
    cup diced onion
  • 12
    teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1
    teaspoon onion powder
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 2
    teaspoons vegan chicken seasoning (Chicknish, Butler's Chick-Style, or other)
  • 16
  • 12
    cup water (if needed)
  • 2
    tablespoons soy sauce


  • Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add seasonings and mix until combined.
  • Drain tofu and crumble with hands into the meatball mixture, mix.
  • Add soy sauce and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • With 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.).
  • Continue 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.
  • Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes (depending on size), until nicely browned.
  • Cool and transfer to container or bag for freezing, or serve hot as desired.
  • (These work well as appetizers, or as part of a main dish with barbecue sauce, brown gravy, vegan stroganoff sauce, or Asian sauces.).
