Spicy Thai-Peanut Butter Meatless Balls

I love Asian food, as you all know. I also love pasta dishes. I have tried a bunch of vegan meatball recipes, but so far this one is definitely my favorite. Unlike most, this "meatless ball" recipe is tofu-based, whereas most are bean or TVP based. I thoroughly enjoyed these...I hope you do too!

     Spicy Thai-Peanut Butter Meatless    Balls. 

Spicy Thai-Peanut Butter Meatless Balls; Vegan, Gluten-free. Serves one. 

1. 4 oz. firm tofu
2. 1 T red curry paste
3. 1 tsp all natural creamy peanut butter
4. 1 T ground flaxseeds

1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment. 
2. Combine tofu, paste, and PB in mini food processor and blend until smooth. 
3. Transfer to bowl and stir in flax. 
4. Roll into 6 balls and place on parchment. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Let cool and serve! 

 I served my meatless balls with a Thai-style pasta dish (tofu noodles with a coconut-tomato-ginger sauce). Yummy!


  1. Are you serious?? These look amazing! and so simple. They look super professional, too - they make a great presentation. You can't go wrong with ball-shaped food, in my opinion! :)

    1. Thanks, Leiah! I appreciate the lovely comment dear!

  2. Wow! I have to try these. My parents LOVE peanut butter anything and I haven't been able to find a simple meatless ball recipe to date, but I just found a winner!

  3. Awesome! Thanks, Lauren! I hope you and your parents like them!
