Hey everyone! Today's recipes is going to be a Vegan Italian Meatball. This has been one of the best things I have made by far. No only is this recipe delicious it is also flexible!
With a quick change of the seasonings (especially the herbs) used in this recipe and you can make a different "meat"ball. The key ingredients here are the Maply syrup and liquid smoke. Those two ingredients are my secret ingredient in any fake "meat" recipe I make. The two flavors combine really well and make a wonderful smokey flavor.
These are really good with pasta and a red sauce (as pictured) or even on their own as a snack!
This is a new family favorite and I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!
