As an ex-vegetarian, I still have a fondness for fake meats. From homemade tempeh to tofu to Quorn, I find them a satisfying substitute when I am craving a little protein.
But "fake meat" is perhaps slightly misleading—as, with the possible exception of quorn as a substitute for white-meat chicken, they rarely taste or feel much like the real thing. But this homemade recipe creates a surprisingly juicy, textured meatball. I've actually had sworn carnivores look at me sideways when I tell them its vegetarian.
|4||eggs, slightly beaten|
|1||envelope of dried onion soup mix (in an effort to cut back on processed foods, I have tried using dried onions and herbs instead, but the result was disappointing...)|
|2 cups||grated cheddar cheese - we've heard smoked gouda is good too|
|¾ cup||chopped walnuts|
|1 cup||dry breadcrumbs|
|Some vegetarian broth|
