Grönsaksbullar: Ikea’s cheap, plastic vegan food

Ikea, the Swedish big blue monster now serves a vegan version of their meatballs. So… you know, I had to go and try them.


That’s right, Vegetable Balls. They are made of… no, not plastic but chickpeas, kale, peppers, sweet corn, peas, onions, turnips, pea starch, canola oil, black pepper, sage, bay leaves, and salt. Yep, the vegetable balls are all vegetable.IMG_0940

The ample serving of balls (10!) come with over-cooked veggies and a cauliflower and sweet potato sauce, all for less than $5. Super values are Ikea’s thing. IMG_0944

How’d they taste? Pretty darn good considering… you’re at a furniture store and you’re paying less than $5. Pretty darn good indeed! Thank you, Ikea, for embracing a new food philosophy and shifting towards more sustainable options. I have to admit, I always wanted an option in your eatery.  PicMonkey Collage
