The meatless meatball is made with pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion, and apples, making it a great option for a variety of dietary needs.
In-store, the dish is served with mashed potatoes, broccoli, lingonberry and cream sauce — which does contain dairy — but the balls, themselves, are totally vegan.
The best part is that the plant-based version emits only four percent of the climate emissions of its meat-based counterpart.
“We know that living more sustainably is top of mind for Canadians. With the new plant ball, we are proud to offer a healthy, delicious, affordable and sustainable alternative to the traditional meatball," says Danielle Beauchesne, Country IKEA Food Manager.
“We are confident that the plant ball will convince even the most skeptical meat eaters to enjoy plant-based alternatives.”
Now we have another reason to head to IKEA... not that we need any!
