Vegan Meatball Sub Loaded With Marinara and Dairy-Free Cheese

Vegan Meatball Sub Loaded With Marinara and Dairy-Free Cheese

Enjoy a dinner of champions with this vegan meatball sub recipe.

You can easily whip up these vegan meatballs using a variety of plant-based ingredients, such as mushrooms, kale, brown lentils, rolled oats, and sunflower seeds, as well as a food processor.

The vegan meatball sub is loaded with marinara sauce, which you can purchase from the store or make at home. It also features extra chopped mushrooms and garlic and vegan Havarti cheese all on a roll.

The plant-based sub is a more eco-friendly dinner option. Beef has the highest environmental impact of all animal protein. It is responsible for 6.5 pounds of CO2e per serving. That’s the equivalent of driving more than eight miles in a car.

On the other hand, lentils emit approximately two pounds of CO2 per pound—a major win for the planet. Lentils are the perfect swap for a more sustainable meatball sub. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, try this New York-style meatball sub with melted vegan cheese.

Make this vegan sandwich for a family dinner, or enjoy it all by yourself.
