I can’t say my Swedish meatballs are a copycat, but they are totally Ikea inspired.
Super juicy and tasty, you have to give them a try!
Juicy Vegan Swedish ‘Meatballs’
For the meatballs
1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil
2 cups diced mushrooms
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup chickpeas, mashed
1 cup whole wheat Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 teaspoon sriracha
2 tablespoons liquid aminos
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of allspice
pinch of salt + freshly cracked pepper to taste
For the sauce:
1/2 cup cashews, soaked overnight
1 cup water
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon liquid aminos
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
5 tablespoons vegan butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley for garnish
For the meatballs:
Heat oil on medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook down for a few minutes before adding onion and garlic. Take off heat when onions are translucent. Set aside until cooled a bit.
In a medium bowl add all ingredients (including mushroom mixture). Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. If needed, mix with clean hands.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Roll into balls a little smaller than a golf ball. If they seem crumbly, make sure you are pressing/rolling them firmly. I find a dryer mixture results in better textured meatballs.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-30 minutes, turning over half way through the time. Take them out when they have a lightly browned outer crust.
For the sauce:
Add cashews, water, vinegar, liquid aminos, and mustard to a blender. Blend on high until completely smooth.
Heat butter in a large skillet. Add flour. Whisk constantly for a few minutes.
Pour in cashew mixture along with the vegetable broth. Bring to a simmer. The sauce will begin to thicken. Add salt and pepper.
Add meatballs and sprinkle with the fresh parsley.
Serve over mashed potatoes, noodles, or rice.
