Tofu meatballs are delicious served alone as an indulgent appetizer, or with the delicious sweet and sour sauce recipe.  If you prefer, you can substitute the sauce with your favorite like marinara sauce for spaghetti dinner or a creamy alfredo sauce or in a sub. I love them with rice and steamed broccoli.

I'm so proud to say that this Vegan Tofu Meatballs recipe and Cauliflower Nuggets have been served for the past three years at the Vegetarian Society Of DC annual Thanksgiving dinner and has received raved reviews. The great thing is that the recipe is also gluten-free.

How To Make Vegan Tofu Meatballs

To make the meatballs, make breadcrumbs by blending a slice of bread in a food processor (I used gluten-free bread).

They also freeze well. I prefer to use extra-firm tofu, Trader Joes has a pretty firm tofu. I make my own breadcrumbs by processing the chopped up bread slices in a food processor. Combine with walnuts, sage, oregano, and basil.

In a food processor or blender, place tofu,  liquid amino’s, nutritional yeast flakes, tapioca starch, onion powder, garlic, and sea salt and process.

Pour blended mixture into the bowl with seasoned breadcrumbs and mix well.

Form into balls and bake for 30 minutes turning meatballs after 15 minutes. Transfer tofu meatballs to a serving dish and spoon sweet and sour sauce over the tofu meatballs and serve.
