Frikkadels (meatballs)


  • 200 g soya mince (if using dried, soak the mince in hot water for 20min beforehand)
  • ½ cup fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon 5ml garlic, crushed
  • ½ small onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons 30ml chickpea flour
  • Equivalent of 2 eggs (beaten until frothy (e.g. Orgran No-egg or flax egg))


  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding egg replacement last
  • Roll into small balls with wet hands (use a teaspoon to make sure they are the same size)
  • Place on a floured surface and fry balls in oil in batches until the outside is crispy
  • Serve on spaghetti, with a Napoletana sauce, or on a bed of fresh greens with a splash of olive oil.


Tip: Use this recipe as a base. For variety in flavour, you can add anything you like – e.g. curry paste, cilantro or olive pieces.
