Who's ready for Beyond Meat Meatballs made in 25 mins using super simple ingredients? I know I am!
Realistically these meatless meatballs could be made with any vegan ground round, but I’ve only ever tried making Beyond meat meatballs with beyond beef because it tastes so good.
Don't have Beyond Beef ground round for your meatballs? Not a problem! You can make this recipe using 3 crumbled up beyond meat burger patties.
Have extra beyond meat? Try my Beyond Meat Nachos!
I make Beyond Meat Meatballs on a regular basis because they're quick and easy to make whenever I don’t want to make something big! Spaghetti and meatballs are a staple in my house and adding these vegan meatballs do just the trick!
We love most about these vegan meatballs is how versatile they are.
Spaghetti and meatballs? Check.
Meatball Sub? Check.
Meatball Sliders? Check.
Meatball Mac and Cheese? Double Check.
The possibilities are really endless with meatballs. They are a great way to add some protein to a dish. I like to pair these with steamed veggies, pasta sauce, and black bean pasta to make a complete and nutritious meal!
PS: Mashed potatoes and meatballs are a real comfort food of mine and if you haven’t already tried it I highly recommend it.
