  • 8 oz Cremini Mushrooms finely minced (food processed optional)
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 1/4 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 can Cannellini Beans drained + rinsed
  • 1/2 Yellow onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parsley flakes
  • 1 TBSP Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Oregano flakes
  • 1 tsp Rosemary flakes
  • 1 tsp Vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Salt + Pepper, each
  • 1/2 tsp A1 Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg


  • 3 cups Vegetable broth
  • 1 can Full-fat Coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 3 TBSP Vegetable oil
  • 1 TBSP Vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 TBSP Parsley flakes
  • Salt + Pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together well, mashing the beans with a fork until you creates a bit of a paste.
    *For a mushier ground meat texture, run your minced mushrooms through a blender/food processor before mixing with beans + rest of the ingredients in bowl. Saves time + effort!
  • Form the mixture into mini balls using a large spoon or a 1/4 cup measuring tool. Heat an oiled frypan over medium-high heat and place the balls in in small batches, turning so each side begins to brown + crisp.
  • Lay out the meatballs on a sheet pan and bake in the oven for about 10 more minutes. Take out + cool.
  • Meanwhile in a medium saucepan, bring vegetable broth to boil. Pour in the rest of the gravy ingredients, taking time with the flour to avoid clumps. Stir constantly to combine + thicken the sauce into a gravy. Add S+P as you go!
  • You have options! Pour gravy over meatballs for a saucy coated side dish, or pour the balls into the sauce along with some cooked pasta to create a Swedish Meatball dinner.
    Either way, garnish with some fresh parsley + ENJOY!

I hold my childlike imagination very close to my heart, and it’s caused me to make science experiments for a living, just as I did for fun with anything I could get my hands on in my kitchen growing up. Only now, instead of Dawn detergents and Hershey’s cocoa powder, it’s butters and essential oils. It’s what lead to Sukha Seat, and to my mom finally trying my creations!

I am a lover of all arts, a try-er of all crafts, and a believer of all things.
