Published on Wednesday 13th March 2019 by DJ Kirkby

This is a huge fave in our house – meetball (meat free) sub topped with spicy marinara and vegan mayo.


  • 3 carrots (washed and grated)
  • 3 celery stalks (washed and diced)
  • 12 mushrooms (washed, grated then diced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2tsp turmeric
  • 2tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tin of pearl barley (drained)
  • 60g oat flour (grind up porridge oats in a blender)
  • 60g nooch (nutritional yeast)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Method
  2. Simmer veg with enough oil to cover pan until soft, then add spices and a splash or two of water to blend the spices and herbs into the veg.
  3. Add the oat flour and nooch at the same time and stir until the mixture comes together into a ball.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Once cool enough to handle, wet hands and roll 30g sizes portions into balls.
  6. Fry in the same pan you cooked the mixture in until browned on all sides.
  7. Serve in a baguette and top the meetballs with spicy marinara sauce (click here for my super simple recipe) and vegan mayo.
