Vegan Meatballs Recipe

I guess after my previous blog post on ‘If you are vegan, then why do you eat fake meat?‘ it is quite clear that I like to eat whatever I like – simply in a cruelty-free version. These vegan ‘meatballs’ are one of the recipes I create regularly – if anyone has a better word for them that is still comprehensible by the general public, feel free to let me know, because just ‘balls’ sounds more than wrong in my opinion 😉

I hope you will enjoy this recipe – it’s fairly simple when it comes to the ingredients. Let me know how yours turned out in the comments section below!

Vegan ‘Meatballs’ 


  • 1 tin of red kidney beans, drained
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • oil for frying
  • 75g mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp Aminos liquid (alternatively use soy sauce)
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika powder
  • 5 Tbsp flour (use gluten-free option if desired)
  • salt/pepper to taste


  1. Chop the onion and washed mushrooms and fry these shortly in a little oil until the onion begins to soften die Zwiebel glasig wird.
  2. Drain the red kidney beans and add them to a blender alongside the rest of the ingredients & the onion.mushroom mix. Alternatively you can add everything to a bowl and puree with a stick blender (this is my preferred option to be honest)
  3. Fold the flour into the mixture and with your oiled hands create the ‘meatballs’
  4. For the low calorie option add the balls to an ovenproof dish and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes. Alternatively heat a little oil in your pan and fry the ‘meatballs’ in your pan. I would advise using a pan with lid for this, as the oil can splash during the frying period.
  5. These ‘meatballs’ are great on a sandwich but also amazingly paired with Spaghetti & tomato sauce – like I did in the image above. But most importantly: enjoy!
