Spaghetti And Meat Free Balls (Vegan)

By McDonald, T.  |  Date 10th of December 2020

Spaghetti and meatballs was one of my favourite meals, so when i found a mock meat to recreate this al time favourite of mine i leaped at the chance!  I am glad this didn't disappoint.  The meat free balls come from Plant Chef from Tesco, but the tomato sauce is mostly home-made. 

Severs 1 (Multiple by however many you are catering for)

Time: 15 minutes 


  • 4 Plant Chef Meat Free Balls
  • 100 g chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 tablespoon of salsa 
  • 2 tsp vegan pesto
  • 2 tsp of garlic paste
  • 1 tsp of chilli powder
  • salt 
  • pepper
  • 1 tsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp of soya sauce
  • Dried spaghetti (Dried is vegan, but fresh is not)
  • Some mixed veg such as peas, carrot, runner beans and sweetcorn


  • Saucepan
  • Frying pan 
  • Spatula 
  • Tongs


Pan fry the meat free balls for 12 minutes on a medium heat with a little olive oil.  This will need your constant attention because you will need to keep turning them. Once the 12 minutes is up, add the veg and tomato sauce to the frying pan and cover for 3 - 5 minutes.  You may need to turn the heat down once the sauce starts to heat up.   Remember you can always swap the spaghetti for courghetti (zoghetti)
