Meatless Meatballs

Meatless meatballs featuring Impossible Burger Grounds.

I don’t know about you, but I must crave meatballs (or in this case, meatless meatballs) at least once a month. It is 100%, absolutely, a comfort thing. However, I’ve come to a point in my life that it brings discomfort physically, mentally, and emotionally when I eat meat, especially red meat. I knew I had to develop something to satisfy my cravings while simultaneously resolving this problem.

Cue in: Impossible “Beef”! Now, Is it the healthiest thing? Perhaps not. Although! Neither are meatballs so I think it’s safe to say this is a kinder, more sustainable alternative at the very least! (Again, purely comfort here!)

P.S.  I’ve tried variations with Beyond Meat and combinations of both competitors together.  The batch that got the most positive response amongst who I shared with was the Impossible version. But don’t let that stop you from experimenting! It’s supposed to be as fun as it is tasty! Plus, everyone has their texture and taste preferences anyways! So who am I to judge??

I simply hope this recipe brings as much comfort for you as it does for me! So on that note, scroll below for the recipe, and above all, enjoy!

“Miracles are like meatballs, because nobody can exactly agree on what they are made of, where they come from, or how often they should appear.” – Daniel Handler

Meatless Meatballs:



  • 24 oz. Impossible Burger Grounds
  • 3/4 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 3 cloves garlic (more or less depending on preference), minced
  • 2 Tbs fresh parsley or basil, finely chopped (optional)
  • 3 Tbs Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 45 oz. marinara sauce of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Add all ingredients except for marinara sauce to a large mixing bowl. Combine until evenly distributed, then use an ice cream scoop to portion. Roll into spheres and place on a lined baking sheet.
  2. When ready, bake for 30 minutes. In the meantime, add marinara sauce to a large pot and bring to medium heat.
  3. When meatballs are ready, transfer and submerge into the marinara sauce. Increase heat to high until the sauce begins to bubble, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Cover the pot and allow to cook for 1-2 hours. When ready, pair with pasta and enjoy!
