Vegetarian Swedish Meatballs
This vegetarian twist on the classic Swedish meatballs is a wonderful alternative that still hits all the flavor high-notes of the original. Meaty mushrooms and protein-rich lentils form the base of these meatless meatballs, which pair deliciously with creamy mashed potatoes, bright cucumber salad, and rich mushroom gravy.
Traditional Swedish lingonberry jam adds a sweet counterpoint to this savory dish. Lentils provide an excellent source of plant-based protein, as well as fiber, folate, and polyphenols that can boost heart health. Even if you’re not a vegetarian, studies have shown the benefits of eating plant-based meals, both for your health and the environment. This filling and tasty recipe is sure to convert even the most staunch carnivores in your life!
