Tofu Meatballs with No Fat Added
Vegan meatballs. Super healthy, low calorie, and very versatile. The mix of grains and flours is very flexible - use whatever you have on hand. The seasonings could easily be altered to make this recipe suitable for any ethnicity. I usually serve them over spaghetti with a simple red sauce on top. You can make it into a meatloaf instead of meatballs.
Recipe Summary test
Any variety of tofu can be used. The brand listed has the right texture on its own. Other varieties will probably need to be frozen first, then thawed, drained, and crumbled.
You can use wheat germ or dry whole grain bread crumbs instead of oat bran if desired. Substitute brown mustard for the Dijon mustard if preferred. Substitute 1/8 teaspoon smoke powder for the liquid smoke if desired. Use 1/2 teaspoon of the sweetener of your choice.
I use a food processor for all the veggies. How else could you grate mushrooms?
Note there is no added salt. This recipe is plenty salty on its own. You can use tamari instead of soy sauce if desired.
I like to bake them most of the way, then turn off the oven and finish the baking later just before serving.
