Dairy-Free Swedish Meatballs
For years now, everytime I make my dairy-free and eggless meatballs, I want to recreate IKEA’s Swedish Meatballs.
Well, I’ve finally perfected it and can’t wait for you to try it! Here’s what you’ll need for the baked meatballs:
- Ground beef
- Fresh parsley
How to Make Dairy-Free Swedish Meatballs Gravy
The gravy is arguably one of the most important parts of the entire dish! Here’s how to make the swedish meatball sauce with no cream or dairy.
- Veggie broth
- Coconut milk
- Soy sauce (or tamari, if gluten-free)
- Dijon mustard
- Cornstarch (or alternative)
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Salt and pepper
As the meatballs cook in the oven, add all of the ingredients (except for the cornstarch and fresh parsley) to a skillet or saucepan, then bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer and whisk in cornstarch. Let simmer for a few minutes, stirring constantly, until the gravy is thick and creamy.
Transfer cooked meatballs to skillet and coat with gravy sauce. Serve swedish meatballs over fusilli pasta or mashed potatoes.
