Italian Meatballs with a Tomato and Basil Sauce


Italian Meatballs with a Tomato and Basil Sauce

These bad boys really pack a flavour punch. Perfect with pasta or on top of some salad, they’re also super tasty served cold and would make a great lunch box snack for the little ones. They also hold their shape well, so there’s no messing around, and they cook easily.

This recipe makes about 24 completely vegan meatballs that will have even your meat-eating friends coming back for more. If you make a batch on the weekend, and freeze a portion of them, you’ll be chuffed to come home to this easy-to-prepare meal after a busy day. Oh! They’re also super healthy, and if you’re on a gluten-free diet, just swap out the regular oats for gluten-free oats.

Serve with a sauce of your choice, but I love them with my tomato and basil sauce — perfect every time!
