Meatless Meatball Sandwich

The Meatless Meatballs from Trader Joe’s are delicious and make a good, hearty sandwich.

I like this product because it doesn’t have the overpowering wheat-y taste that some vegan substitutes do.  The texture is softer than actual meatballs but not bad!

I couldn’t find any sub-style rolls at Trader Joe’s, so I bought the sourdough boule.  At home I slightly toasted two slices of this bread while microwaving six meatless balls and a little bit of Trader Joe’s marinara.  I spread the sauce on the bread, arranged the balls on top, and added a few slices of red onion.  Some vegan Parmesan would be good here ( I wish Trader Joe’s carried that!)

  • 2 slices sourdough bread: $0.56
  • 6 Meatless Meatballs: $0.80
  • About 1/4 cup marinara: $0.14
  • 6 slices red onion: $0.03
