by | March 27, 2020

There’s never a bad time for a healthy, hearty, vegan adaptation of your favorite comfort food — and you simply can’t go wrong with meatballs.

This simple, tasty recipe from Terri Edwards of EatPlant-Based is a sure win with the whole family.

Easy Hearty Vegan Meatballs



  1. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350. Parchment paper makes clean up so much easier with this recipe.
  2. Cook bulgur according to package directions. It cooks on the stovetop or in a rice cooker in about 15-minutes.
  3. Dice all veggies–onion, garlic, celery, bell pepper, and walnuts.
  4. Mix all ingredients in a very large bowl. You can use a spoon, but I prefer to use my hands to thoroughly blend ingredients.
  5. Form into balls and place on a baking sheet. If the mixture seems too wet, add a few more oats. If it seems too dry, add a little bit of the juice drained from tomatoes or water. These should hold together to form balls pretty well.
  6. Bake at 350°F for approximately 30 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Cover with marinara and serve over pasta or on subs. Or drizzle barbecue sauce over top and bake an additional 15 minutes to serve as an appetizer.
  8. Enjoy!
