A plant ball for meat lovers

Small things can make a big difference. Take our new plant ball, for example. It has the same great taste and texture of the IKEA meatball but without the meat.

Plain white plate of plant-based meatballs, brown sauce, mash potatoes, lingonberry jam, green peas and a sprig of parsley.
Package of HUVUDROLL plant balls, surrounded by the unprocessed ingredients: peas, oats, potatoes, onions, apples and spices.

The meatball reimagined

The plant ball is proof that a less meaty future can be just as delicious, whether you’re a meat lover or not. Made with pea protein, potatoes, oats, onion and apple, it has the same taste and juicy bite of the IKEA meatball – minus the meat. Instead, the perfect meaty taste is achieved by adding umami flavours, like mushroom, tomato and roasted vegetables.

A whole new ball game

The world is facing an urgent climate crisis. Realising the importance of taking immediate action, at IKEA, we're working hard to deliver on our ambition to become climate positive by 2030. One piece of the puzzle is increasing the proportion of plant-based food – such as the all-new plant ball.

Get ready for kick-off

The new plant ball joins the growing family of IKEA meatballs and will launch in the UK in August 2020. In our restaurants, the dish will be served with mashed potatoes, cream sauce, lingonberry jam and peas, just like the traditional meatball plate – and at the same low price. Of course, the plant ball will also be available from the Swedish Food Market in our stores. Curious? Go on – have a taste!
