You will be shocked at just how good these are. Better tasting the next day. I make mine the night before so the flavors can meld together.I have served them with white and Red sauces an Onion gravy is also delish.
Even my die-hard meat eating mother loves them.

How to Make Tofu *Meatballs (meatless) (Vegetarian)

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute the onion, carrot, pepper, garlic and mushrooms in oil until tender, for about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs, then add, walnuts, parsley,basil, mustard,olive oil, soy sauce,salt,pepper.
  3. Crumble the pressed tofu with your hands. Add it to the bowl w/the sauteed vegetables. Mix well.
  4. Add bread crums ( I sometimes add left over rice also)Mix well
  5. Lightly oil your hands.Form into 2 inch balls and place on well oiled cookie sheet (they will stick if you dont add the oil)
  6. Bake at 350* for 25 to 30 minutes turning once so they arent flat on one side.
  7. Add *cooked meatlessballs to your favorite sauce or gravy and serve over rice or pasta.

    If serving with a gravy it's great with an onion gravy. If you add sour-cream it's like having Swedish Meatballs.
