The plant balls go perfectly with classic meatball friends like mashed potatoes, cream sauce, peas and lingonberry jam (but you can also try them with something completely new and different, of course.)
Easily prepared from frozen in minutes. In the oven, in the microwave or on the stove.
Easily portioned. Prepare the amount needed, leave the rest in the freezer.
Just as tasty warm as they are cold, e.g. halved as a sandwich topping.

Heavenly flavours from the soil
We would like to inspire more people to eat more plant-based food. Why? Since it generally requires less water, less arable land and less energy to produce – and is therefore a more sustainable alternative. So that you can easily make sustainable choices in everyday life and reduce your climate footprint, our restaurant, bistro and Swedish food market all offer various plant-based alternatives. And one more thing – this food from the soil is also heavenly tasty!
A buffet of good
Today’s recipe for the classic IKEA meatball rolled out from our test kitchen already in 1985. Since then, the IKEA meatball has become an icon on plates around the world and a proud example of traditional Swedish cooking. But, when we asked customers on three different continents what food they prefer, we realised we had to extend our meatball family with tasty alternatives.
“Not everyone eats beef or pork, so we went into the kitchen to create new recipes,” says David Johansson, chef and product developer at IKEA Food Services. First came the chicken ball – an alternative for those who like meat, but not necessarily red meat.
“Like all our meatballs it’s just as good hot as cold, and we’ve seasoned it gently so it fits different cuisines and local flavours.”
New flavours in a classic shape
Sustainability was also a reason to create new options.
“With the veggie ball we wanted to offer something as appreciated as the classic meatball, but plant-based and with less environmental impact,” explains David.
Next came the salmon and cod ball. It contains pieces of salmon that are too small to be used as whole fillets.
“And since it’s very tasty meat, we thought, why not make delicious fish balls of it instead?” says David.
Recreating the meatball without meat
The newest edition to the family is the plant ball. It’s made with pea protein, potatoes, apple, oats and onion, but has the great taste and juicy bite of a meatball – making it perfect for everyone who wants to cut down on meat without losing out on the experience. With a climate footprint that is just 4% of the meatball’s, the plant ball has the power to make a difference.
“A lot has happened since 1985. Now, there are eatable IKEA icons for more of the many people. No matter if you’re flexitarian, vegan, meat lover, have dietary needs or cultural preferences.”
Try a super savoury, Scandi-inspired plant ball
Can pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple feel and taste like meat? Yes!
The HUVUDROLL plant ball is based on these five traditional, Scandinavian ingredients – beefed up by natural flavouring and balanced by mushroom, tomato, lemon, black pepper and more. Still, it’s got the look, taste and juicy texture of a meatball. Plant balls go perfectly with classic meatball friends, or why not try them in a curry, or served with kimchi or grains. Have a bite!
