These are really great with some form of spaghetti sauce and some grated mozzarella melted on top. Love them!

I am a huge fan of Trader Joe's meatballs so although these are not my favorite, they are pretty good. I tasted some very strong herb -- sage? thyme? I can't remember and the salt content is kinda high. 560mg per serving.

These are 100% vegetarian and vegan, by the way, and have no MSG or artifical colors or flavors. And only 1g of fat per meaty meatball.

Try adding these to Trader Joe's canned marinara sauce. Yum!

with these because they are that good! I love adding these to the Sugo di Pomidoro sauce with a bit of Chateau Du Buisson Bordeaux wine and TJ's minced garlic. Throw it on top of some Capellini noodles for a really fancy schmancy dinner.

these are my little brothers favorite things. He is super picky and he has no idea that they are soy! I just serve them with a marinara sauce and he is good to go!

Neither my boyfriend nor I are vegetarians and we love these meatless meatballs. There are flavorful, low in fat, high in fiber, filling. And great in whatever kind of sauce you wish, or even plain. These are now a staple in our freezer.

I heat these with bar-b-que sauce and serve them with toothpicks or between small pieces of rye bread as mini sandwiches -- it a hit with kids (big and small)

Better when baked first in oven, then added to sauce. They are nicely seasoned, but may be too mushy for some tastes if just heated in the sauce without baking.

I think these are disgusting. They are so mushy and over-herbed...and this is coming from someone who loves spices.

I would say to try them , I made 2 batches of balls , meat and meatless in a lite tomatoe sauce.

After being allowed to simmer for an hour plus it was hard to notice a texture difference. I would say its a good product to try and an option when you are hosting a Vegan

These are PERFECT for vegetarian meatball subs! My boyfriend's omnivore brother didn't even know they were meatless when he first tried them! You just need the following: sub bread, mozzarella, marinara sauce and these. Best in the toaster oven!

I brown them a bit in a non-stick skillet with a bit of oil. Then pour over a can of TJ's marinara sauce (green label). You can also add some of their frozen basil cubes...and a large splash of a good red wine. If you're trying to sneak in more veggies (and cut the starch), I have added thawed, drained frozen chopped spicach to the sauce before. And also I have browned some broccoli florets (adding several TBSs of H20 during cooking to steam the broccoli), then serve the meatball, spinach, marinara sauce mixture over the top of the sauteed broc. YUM! And no guilt! (unless you pile on the cheese! ha!)

I'm not a vegetarian, but I find these better than any of the real meat meatballs. They are much more moist and, while a bit mushy, have a great texture and flavor. It's a fantastic way to add some good protein to any pasta dish.

These meatballs are soo good even my 11 month old loves them. I put them in the microwave for about 2 minutes with some veggies and my meal is ready -- some for baby and some for me. Could not get any easier.

I always bake them and they don't get mushy. My favorite way to serve them is with TJ's organic Mac and Cheese (shells and white cheddar) Since it's usually just for me, I dump out some noodles so it's extra cheesy and add in some of these meatless meatballs. MMMMmmmm...

They are awesome. We put sauce on it & serve it with a vegetable. We always have to have them in the house. Way to go!

i bake them until kinda crispy and pour on the canned tj's pasta sauce.
what a meal!

Wish they were firmer right out of the package. I usually brown them in a skillet with some crushed garlic and olive oil which helps some. Also good in a vegetarian version of Swedish meatballs.

These Veggie Meatballs are wonderful, we love to use them in all of our pasta dishes, in sandwiches and just plain with bbq sauce.

Moist - doesn't have a weird aftertaste like some mockmeats - great texture - packed with protein. Goes great in subs, pasta, baked dishes, etc.
