Vegan Meatball Sub
This hearty meat-less vegan meatball sub is super indulgent, super messy and 100% soul-satisfying!
This hearty recipe is The Vurger Co.'s take on the classic meatball sub using their make-at-home shroom burgers. If you can't get your hands on The Vurger Co.'s shroom burgers then you can substitute with Linda McCartney's Vegetarian Meatballs instead.
Total Time: 15
Total Time: 15
- 1 1 baguette or sub roll
- 1 1 pack The Vurger Co Make at Home ‘Shroom’ burgers
- Olive oil
- 0.5 0.5 jar pasta sauce (we used marinara sauce)
- Vegan mayo
- Vegan parmesan
- salt and pepper
- fresh curly leaf parsley
Start by preheating the oven to 200 degrees.
Firstly, let’s make these ‘Shroomballs’!
This is where it gets a little messy. Take your two Shroom patties from the pack and divide and firmly compress each patty into 3 relatively large balls- so 6 in total! Make sure you press firmly to get rid of any moisture and keep them nice and compact. Set aside.
Place your baguette in the oven and cook for 5-10 minutes until the edges are a little crispy.
Meanwhile, add your olive oil to a frying pan and once it’s hot add the individual Shroomballs to the pan.
Cook them for 6-8 minutes, making sure that you are regularly moving and rolling them around the pan so that all sides are getting cooked through and that they’re slightly crispy on the outside! Turn off the heat and stir in the pasta sauce, coating the Shroomballs while the pan is still hot.
Once your baguette is cooked, spread a layer of vegan mayonnaise across the top and bottom half. Now add the 6 Shroomballs to the baguette, making sure they have plenty of sauce on. Drizzle more sauce over them if necessary!
Finally, sprinkle a generous helping of vegan parmesan and fresh parsley on top and close it all up!
WARNING! This bad boy can get messy!
You may find it easier to cut the sub in half or use a burger skewer to keep it all together. If you’re feeling super optimistic, just grab with two hands and get stuck in!
