Nov. 7th, 2005 @ 12:05 am Veggie "meatballs"
Edit: I named an ingredient wrong. What I meant was Soya chunks, not dried tofu chunks. Sorry if that caused any confusion!

hey! I'm new here. :)
I experimented with soya chunks yesterday, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out so I thought I'd share:


2 veggie bulions, crumbled
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon basil
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon paprica
a couple of tablespoons of oil

First, soak soy chunks in water for a couple of hours, until they are completely soft.

Once you've made the marinade, add a bit of water (enough to cover the soy) and mix well. Before adding the dried soy, squeeze all the water out of them first so they will suck up the marinade extra well. I left them to soak over night, and thought they tasted better than the ones I made the same day as I cooked them, so I'd recommend doing that.

I fried this with some onions, mushrooms, beans, broccoli, spinach and red lentils and boiled it with some tahini and canned tomatoes. End result was a deliciously filling spaghetti sauce! :)

Most vegetarian "meatless" meatballs are not tasty. I want to try your recipe. Thank you for sharing.
