Vegan Tofu Meatballs


If you've followed my journey, then you know Tofu is one of my favorite vegan proteins.


Tofu is a great option for vegans or anyone looking for a healthy source of plant-based protein. Nasoya's Super Firm Organic Tofu has 14g of protein per serving. It's vacuum packed & pressed, so no pressing required.


Nasoya's tofu is made with simple, organic and clean ingredients which is something that is super important to me.

It can be used in a wide range of recipes from desserts to snacks to main courses.




I recreated one of the childhood dishes my Mom used to make all the time, Dominican Meatballs, using America's Favorite Tofu, Nasoya.


Here’s the recipe:⁣

Ingredients

1 pack of Nasoya Super Form Organic Tofu ⁣

1 cup of mushrooms ⁣

3 Garlic cloves⁣

1/2 red onion⁣

1/4 red bell pepper⁣

1/4 green bell pepper⁣

1 handful of cilantro⁣

1/4 liquid aminos⁣

1 tablespoon of corn starch ⁣

1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast⁣

1.5 cups of breadcrumbs ⁣

Pinch of salt, pepper, coriander⁣

Instructions

Step 1: In a food processor blend all ingredients with the exception of the tofu and the breadcrumbs. ⁣


Step 2: Taste the seasoning and add more salt or pepper if necessary. Add the tofu to the mix & blend.⁣

Step 3: In a large bowl add the breadcrumbs & then the tofu blend. Mix it well. ⁣


Step 4: Form into balls and air fry for 15-16 minutes at 370 degrees ( turn meatballs halfway through)⁣


Notes: ⁣

*If you’re using an oven, bake at 370 degrees for about 30-35 minutes (turn halfway through).⁣

*Optional: Use olive oil spray on Tofu meatballs before baking/air-frying ⁣

You can find Nasoya Organic Super Firm Tofu at Shop Rite, Stop & Shop, Foodtown & other locations. ⁣


I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Make sure to check out Nasoya's website & follow them on IG as well.
