Meatless Monday’s: Vegan Meatball Subs


Meatballs, made from vegan ground-beef-flavor Gimme Lean, taste even better the next day, after they have soaked in your homemade marinara sauce overnight. When the meatballs are added to a toasted hoagie roll and topped with warm vegan mozzarella, you’ll forget all about that spaghetti you ate them with last night and appreciate their new-found form in all its messy glory.

8 Trader Joe’s vegan meatballs

1/4 cup marinara sauce

2 hoagie rolls, sliced in half lengthwise

1/4 cup grated vegan mozzarella

Preheat the broiler to low.

Heat the meatballs and the sauce in the microwave or on the stove-top until warm.

Place four meatballs on each hoagie roll, top with half of the marinara and grated soy cheese, and place on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

Place under the broiler until the bread is toasted and the soy cheese has started to melt, about 3 minutes.

Servings: 2 Subs

This classic deli sub is so satisfying that you’ll probably be tempted to whip up a whole new batch of soy meatballs, so be prepared. Enjoy!
