IKEA Dublin Are Adding Plant-Based Meatballs To The Menu

The iconic meatballs are getting a veggie alternative.

Good news for veggies, IKEA has announced that it is extending its food offerings in store.

From August 3, the store is launching a “sustainable sibling” to the much-loved iconic meaty meatball on IKEA’s menus.

The plant-based Swedish meatball, which will be called the “plant ball”, was developed with one main purpose – to recreate a meatball without the meat. Plant balls have just 4% of the climate footprint of the original meatball, contributing to IKEA’s ambition to become climate positive by 2030.

Made using plant-based ingredients, IKEA’s plant balls contain yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple, suitable for all tastes: meatball lovers, flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans alike.

The plant balls also feature the same juicy look and texture as the meatballs and what’s even better, is that they’ll cost just €1.75.

Music to our ears.

The plant balls will also be available to purchase in the Swedish Food Market, if you’re tempted to bring the delish taste home to cook it there.

Speaking of home cooking, but with a sweet angle, late last week Ben & Jerry surprised us by releasing the details on how to make their famous cookie dough at home.
