Nate's Meatballs Review

The people over at Nate's were generous enough to send me a few bags of their delicious meatballs to sample! It's been so long since I've had meatballs I had forgotten how delicious they were! They have three varieties of meat balls to choose from: Classic, Zesty Italian, and Savory Mushroom.

I tried the Classic meatballs first over spaghetti noodles with tomato sauce, but they would be amazing with barbecue sauce or in a Swedish meatball recipe! It's so easy to prepare them too! They can be cooked in the microwave, simmered in sauce, or sauteed on top of the stove. I chose the later and they came out having a crispy crust and a delicious juicy center. Any non-vegan would be easily impressed with these guys!

The Zesty Italian ones were my absolute favorite! I had them between two slices of crusty baguette and topped with marinara sauce and Daiya mozzarella. It was amazingly delicious! These would be really great for your family's spaghetti night as well!

The Savory Mushroom meatballs had a slightly more earthly flavor than the other two, but paired deliciously with my Grandma's gravy (veganized of course). You could also pair this with a sweet tomato sauce for a delicious dinner!

These meatballs are much healthier than their meaty counterparts. Not only are they cholesterol free, but they're all under 100 calories and have almost 10 grams of protein per serving! If you're looking to impress your meat eating family and friends - try creating a dish with Nate's Meatless Meatballs!


  1. Do you have a recipe that are rich in zinc? Or can you suggest restaurant that serves a good zinc-rich foods as delicious as this one? I was afraid when I read this article at zinc deficiency and as a vegan, I think I am directly affected by this one?

    1. Foods rich in zinc are wheat, oats, pumpkin seeds, nuts, and peas. Zinc supplements are generally included in complete supplements. If you're diagnosed with zinc deficiency, you should consult a physician for the correct dosage and type of zinc supplements to take.
