Christmas spiced meatballs or julköttbullar are a must on every Swedish Christmas table and as you know I am from Sweden and we currently live in Sweden as well, so every year I come up with a new Vegan Christmas Spiced Swedish Meatballs recipe inspired by the meatballs I used to eat as a kid every Christmas season. In our humble opinion, these ones are the very best ones from all our variations recipes because they are so insanely meaty and delicious, super easy, made with very simple ingredients that everyone can find at the supermarket, and can be made gluten-free only by swapping the all-purpose flour with gluten-free all-purpose flour and a bit of xanthan gum. Serve them along with our Vegan Green Peppercorn Gravy, our masterpiece THE Swedish Style Vegan Christmas Ham, and our Crispy Vegan Cheesy Potato Stacks.

Instructions
 

Meatballs

  • Press the tofu manually or using a tofu press until most of the water has been drained.
  • In a large bowl, place the pressed tofu, and using a potato masher, mash the tofu until it's broken up into small pieces. Stir in the very finely chopped onion, sea salt, ground cloves, freshly crushed allspice, freshly ground black pepper, beetroot powder, Japanese soy sauce, and liquid smoke. Mix using a sturdy spatula until well combined. Try the mixture and adjust the seasoning to your own taste before adding the flour.
  • Once you have adjusted the seasoning, add the all-purpose flour to the mixture, and continue mixing, using a sturdy spatula, until a dough comes together. If the mixture is too wet, add a little more flour.

  • Using a small cookie scoop, make balls out of the dough until you have used all the mixture. Place the meatballs on a parchment paper-lined tray. We made 50 meatballs, which would be 6 servings.

Pan-frying

  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, and cook the meatballs in batches of 8.
  • For every batch of approximately 8 meatballs, we added to a hot non-stick skillet 1 tsp of vegan salted butter and 1/2 tbsp of Japanese soy sauce. Pan-fry the meatballs until golden on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes per batch.

  • Place pan-fried meatballs back onto the parchment paper-lined baking tray. Let them rest until room temperature.
  • Refrigerate the meatballs for a minimum of 2 hours to overnight. This is an important step to achieve the right consistency, do not omit!
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/356ºF.
  • Place the chilled meatballs back onto the parchment paper-lined baking tray and bake on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately along with our Vegan Green Peppercorn Gravy and our Crispy Vegan Cheesy Potato Stacks. Enjoy!
