2nd Favorite: Vegetable Balls
The vegetarian "meat" balls taste very reminiscent of Dr. Praeger's veggie burgers. Though they are made with chickpeas and kale, the prominent flavors are of carrots, corn, and red pepper; in other words, heavy on the veg. As it turns out, these veggie balls are both vegan and gluten-free, which is good news for people with dietary restrictions. The $5 platter comes with steamed veggies and a "gravy" that changes seasonally. I had them with a black bean/sweet potato/quinoa chili, which was an unexpected but welcomed Southwestern twist against the otherwise Scandinavian dishes. Savory, hearty, and vegetable-packed, this plate is what I'd order if I needed some clean energy before tackling the Ikea showrooms. If I ordered it again, I would probably request extra chili to amp up the protein and because it was quite delicious.
