IKEA set to launch plant-based alternative to its famous meatballs next month made from pea protein

IKEA is set to release a plant-based meatball across all Australian bistros on October 6.

The new plant-based treat was created to look and taste exactly the same as the original meatball, but with sustainable plant-based ingredients.

The new menu offering will be served with mashed potatoes, lingonberries, and cream sauce – the same way as the traditional dish and at the same budget price. 

After years of anticipation, IKEA is set to release a plant-based meatball across all Australian bistros on October 6

The plant-based meat substitute is made with yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple, but contains dairy products and is not suitable for those on a vegan diet.

‘We’re excited to be able to soon start offering a more sustainable option of our original meatball without compromising on the classic IKEA meatball experience,’ said IKEA spokeswoman Bijanka Zubonja.

‘Through the exclusive sustainable dining experiences, we’re able to provide the very first taste of the plant ball to Australians, as well as showcasing other sustainable food options in our menu in a way that’s never been done before,’ Bijanka said. 

Customers can also purchase take-home packets of frozen plant meatballs from the Swedish Food Market.
