Recipe type: Vegan
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary.
  • 500 grams finely chopped brown cremini
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 large grated carrot, and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  • 30 grams fresh Italian parsley
  • ⅓ cup of bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of flax seed, milled
  • 1 tablespoon onion salt
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chopped almond flakes (optional but strongly recommended)
  • 1 teaspoon vegan Worcester sauce (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chili (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
  1. In a large saucepan of olive oil saute the chopped onion, garlic and rosemary.
  2. Add about 18 ounces / 500 grams finely chopped brown cremini (also known as baby portabellini) mushrooms and season with salt and black pepper. Saute until they have released their liquid.About 5 - 10 minutes.
  3. When browned, add 1 large grated carrot, and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  4. Remove the mushroom mixture from heat and add to a large mixing bowl and allow to cool for a few moments.
  5. Add remaining ingredients to the mixture. Mix well using a spatula or wooden spoon.
  6. Check that the mixture is cool enough to handle and begin forming into balls or patties. The mixture should also not be too wet, or the balls will fall apart in the pan. Add more bread crumbs to reduce the moisture content if needed. It's usually easiest to roll all of the patties or balls before you begin cooking the patties.
  7. Cook the vegan meatballs in batches by shallow frying in vegetable oil. Make sure the oil is sizzling hot. If the oil is not warm enough, your vegan mushroom meatballs will absorb the oil and become soggy, instead of creating a dark, delicious crust.
  8. When the balls are nicely brown all around, but not burnt, remove using a slotted spoon. Place into a plate lined with absorbent paper towel, serve and enjoy!
