Neat Foods Meatballs

If you’ve ever been to one of my cooking classes around Boston, chances are you’ve made my favorite tempeh walnut meatballs. They’re easy to make, with fairly cheap ingredients, a high protein content and don’t take much time to pull together.

But on my laziest nights, when I REALLY can’t even stomach the thought of being in my kitchen for an extra minute, I’ve been making equally delicious meatballs, with Neat Foods Italian mix, which are also high in protein, non-GMO and super tasty. The best part? They legit take, like, thirty seconds to put together! So even in my most unmotivated moments, I have no reason NOT to make a batch of these.

I’ve used Neat products before, when they were just limited to their egg replacer. They’ve since expanded extensively and they now include pancake, cookie, brownie and taco mixes. All super simple to put together, most of them just requiring you to add water or one or two additional ingredients. #noexcuses

The Italian mix requires an egg and Parmesan cheese to mix them together. I subbed the egg for one flax “egg”, 1/3 cup nutritional yeast and one tbsp of olive oil. All I had to do was add these to the powder mixture, stir and THAT’S IT. Formed into 6 balls, popped them in the oven for 20 minutes, and I had crispy, flavorful meatballs to add to leftover cauliflower alfredo pasta. SO GOOD!





Sari Foods Acai Powder


If you hadn’t noticed by now, I am completely infatuated with every product available over at Sari Foods. Their nutritional yeast is my favorite and I can no longer make a smoothie without their wheatgrass powder. So it’s no shock, that I am also 100% obsessed with their acai powder. This was the first time I’ve […]

And though I found some insanely awesome vegan eats in Nashville, I will definitely confess […]

Sweet Potato Mac + Cheese


Sooooo you heard about all my grievances with by CHLOE. last month. And I really feel like I came off like such a hater. I do love her stuff, and if anything, the high price tag of the meals inspired me to go home and make them for a fraction of the cost. Like this […]

Vegan Eats: Providence Edition


Clearly, I’ve been lacking in the content department as of late. Which means business is good. Which is always good, right? Except I miss blogging. And the posts I miss the most are the ones where I just get to brag about all the amazing vegan food porn I get to experience when I travel. […]

Pure Cold Press


My one recent regret in life is that I didn’t know about Pure Cold Press opening almost two years ago.  Where have I been?! I am always up to speed on the latest and greatest vegan-friendly and/or juice bars opening about Boston, and somehow, one of the best ones slipped under my radar. I stopped […]
