IKEA is renowned for its modern, affordable furniture but they also offer delicious food. One of their most iconic menu items has got to be their Swedish Meatballs. And now, IKEA will be adding a vegan version called ‘Plant Balls’. They will be rolling out nationwide starting this fall!

The new plant-based version will be made mostly of yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion, and apple. They’re made to look and taste just as good as IKEA’s famous meatballs thanks to umami-rich ingredients including mushroom, tomato, and powder from roasted veggies.

“At IKEA, we sell more than one billion meatballs every year,” Sharla Halvorson, Health & Sustainability Manager for the IKEA food business, said in the release. “Imagine if we could get some of our many meatball lovers to choose the plant ball instead. If we were to convert about 20% of our meatball sales to plant balls that would mean around 8% reduction of our climate footprint for the food business at IKEA.”

If you choose to dine-in at IKEA, you can order the Plant Ball meal which is served with mashed potatoes, lingonberries, and cream sauce. An adult meal costs about $5.99 while a kid’s plate costs about $2.99. You can also order the Plant Balls as a side for $1.25 — your choice! Better yet, IKEA will also offer frozen packages of Plant Balls for $5.99 each so you can take them home and prepare them later. Plant Balls will hit IKEA locations in Europe starting in August and then will officially roll out in the U.S. beginning September 28, 2020.
