This recipe for VEGAN meatballs is made with a mixture of cauliflower, brown rice, breadcrumbs, and variety of herby and warming Italian spices. We included options to either bake or fry the “meatballs” but we highly recommend frying it because the flavor profile is so much more amazing and delicious. The outside of the balls sizzle in the vegetable oil, getting crispy and golden brown while leaving the inside soft and tender.
