Not sure what to make for dinner? We’ve got the perfect recipe. On this episode of EATKINDLY With Me, Amanda Castillo whips up a savory vegan meatball sub, featuring Impossible plant-based burger ground and melted dairy-free provolone cheese.

“I absolutely love products like this. I think it’s super convenient for any of you that want to go vegan but something like meat is holding you back,” she says about the vegan meat. “It has the flavor of beef, but it has no cow in it.”

“It’s super savory, high in protein, but it has zero milligrams of cholesterol,” she adds.

To prepare the vegan meatballs, she minces parsley, basil, and one garlic clove. Amanda uses organic breadcrumbs as a binder for the meatless meatballs. And for seasoning, she opts for garlic salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning. She also adds in vegan parmesan cheese shreds by Follow Your Heart. Feeling hungry yet?

“So I decided to get these demi baguettes from Sprouts,” she says. She adds tomato basil marinara sauce, the vegan meatballs, and provolone cheese. “This is totally up to you,” she continues. “I like to make sure it’s super filled [with meatballs]. And then to top it off, we’re going to add some fresh basil right on top of the meatballs.”

“Here you have it: vegan meatball sandwiches. And the last thing we have to do now is try them. Let’s dive in, shall we?” Amanda says. “Wow, that’s very yummy. So cheesy, meaty, gooey. Absolutely delicious. If you love spice, I would highly recommend adding chili flakes in this too and it would be so yummy.” Here’s how to make the vegan meatball sub of your dreams:
