Not too long ago, IKEA released their recipe for Swedish meatballs with their classic creamy vegetarian gravy. We've updated the recipe to celebrate Veganuary using Impossible Ground Meat Patties to replace animal protein. These meatballs are a wonderful way to find your way into comfort and cozy vegan cooking. As the Swedes say "smaklig måltid" aka "bon appétit"

2 packages Impossible Ground Meat Burger Patties (approx 1 lb)
1 medium onion, peeled, trimmed and finely chopped
1 tbsp Garlic olive oil
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Panko
2 tbsp coconut milk
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp Nutritional Yeast
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste
1 tsp Kosher salt, or more to taste  

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp all purpose flour
1-2/3 cup quality vegetable stock
1 cup full fat coconut milk
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp Dijon mustard


Heat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, add "meat", onion, olive oils, nutmeg, allspice, yeast and Panko. Combine until completely blended. Add coconut milk, salt and pepper. Combine. Roll into small 1-1/2" meatballs. Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Add meatballs in batches so that there's room for movement in the skillet to brown on all sides. Place on rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with sheet of tented foil. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes. Test for doneness during the roasting process.


In medium sauce pan, heat olive oil on medium. When just shimmering, whisk in flour and stir for a couple of minutes until combined and becomes a paste. Gradually, add stock and whisk continuously until blended. When heated add coconut milk, soy sauce and mustard. Simmer until sauce thickens. Drizzle over meatballs. Reserve for side dishes (eg. potatoes).
