Meat Free Meatballs

This meatless meatballs recipe lacks meat, but has all the flavor of a traditional meatball recipe. Cheddar cheese adds a great taste to this vegetarian dish. You may also add fresh or dried herbs of your choosing to tailor the recipe to your specific taste.

My daughter is a vegetarian and I like to make her a meatless version of whatever we are eating at night. I've been stumped as to what to make her when we have meatballs. I'm tired of making eggplant parm and she's probably tired of eating it. I'd like to try this recipe but I'm not familiar with the vegetable mince. Is that in the frozen section or the refrigerated section near the tofu? Thanks for the help.

I'm vegetarian and getting flavour into meat substitutes is always a challenge. I hadn't thought of adding cheese, it's a great idea. I'm going to give these meatballs a try with some hot tomato sauce and spaghetti. I also sometimes make meatballs out of breadcrumbs with egg and loads of herbs and garlic. Simple and cheap.
