A meatball that is meatless? Yup, that is what VeggiePatch has created. These Meatless Meatballs are made from textured vegetable protein, they are here for all vegetarians to enjoy their own version of spaghetti and meatballs. I saw them as a great alternative to a meat filled meal.
I can’t say that they tasted like true meat meatballs, but they did have a very close texture to the real thing. Combined with other ingredients, it helps to make you forget there is no meat involved. I tried several meals with these meatballs, including spaghetti and sauce, meatball melt and cut up with scrambled eggs. I’m definitely a fan of them as a meatball alternative.
Though I’m not a huge fan of some of the ingredients that sound a bit too chemical like for me. Which would possibly deter me from buying these over traditional meat, which I would hope doesn’t contain things like magnesium oxide and zinc oxide, which are chemical names for certain vitamins. But I’d rather they be naturally in my food, not chemically inserted. These meatless meatballs are a great alternative choice, I just wouldn’t eat them regularly if I wasn’t adhering to a strict vegetarian diet.
I will also be reviewing VeggiePatch’s Broccoli Bites with Cheese, so be on the look out for that too. You can currently check out my review for their Falafel Bites here and find out about the many other VeggiePatch products on their website here.
