Give Impossible a try! As one of our favorite vegan meatball brands, Impossible prides itself on using fewer resources than traditional beef products—that’s less water, land, and greenhouse gases.
The Classic Jack Meatballs from Jack & Annie’s are your new freezer staple. These jackfruit-based meatballs are perfectly seasoned and pack a chewy, meaty texture. Each serving contains 8g of plant-based protein and 6g of fiber. We love these plant-based meatballs in spaghetti, on pizzas, and packed into saucy sub sandwiches—the options are endless!

The always-vegan brand Gardein is a freezer-aisle favorite. And the Plant-Based Meatballs hold up the cruelty-free brand’s reputation! While they taste great in a variety of creative preparations, we love to serve ours over roasted spaghetti squash with plant-based marinara, torn basil, and vegan parmesan cheese. Vegan meatball brands FTW!

Available in two flavors, Homestyle and Italian Style with Dairy-Free Parmesan Alternative, the Pure Farmland Plant-Based Meatballs are always a hit.

They’re always a crowd-pleaser.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
