  1. Made these today. Delicious! Had to make them in the Vitamix, so they came out green. 🙂 Mine browned nicely on the bottom, with a slightly moist center.

  2. You wrote tennis ball-sized, but I think you meant golf ball sized. Otherwise, those are some large meatballs!

  3. Hannah, you inspired me to make “veggie balls” croquettes. However, when I went into my pantry I was out of chick peas so I cooked up some lentils to go with my buckwheat groats and made the recipe with delicious fresh corn, yellow and green pepper from the farmer’s market, sunflower seeds and ground flax seed and then I followed your recipe. The end result was fabulous. Thank you for he inspiration! There are only so many veggie burgers in a row that one can eat! The shape of the balls for dipping is lovely. We have a product here in VT, Veracha, which is a locally made vegetable Siracha. Would love to send you a bottle if you message me where to send it. I have become addicted to it! Thank you again for the inspiration.

  4. I’ve honestly never tried ikea veggie balls so i can’t compare them to one another- but i will say they’re really good. My brother even liked them ! And he’s SUPER picky when it comes to food.
