- Ground the linseeds in a blender to a meal (do not over-blend)
- Mix 1 tablespoon of ground linseed to 3 tablespoons of water and set aside to form a slimy, “egg-like” consistency. This will help to bind the patties together.

- Add to the pan the rehydrated soya flakes and chopped walnuts.
- Mix in the tomato concentrate, soy sauce, italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and take off the heat.
- Pre-heat your oven at 180 degrees.
- Put the mixture into a large bowl and fold in the “egg” mixture, and the gram flour.
- Form the mixture into a ball-liked shape, approximately 1.5-2 inches diameter.
- Place onto a lined baking tray and put in the oven for 45 minutes flipping half-way.
Assembling the sub
- Grate the vegan cheese, toast your baguette (optional) and heat your tomato sauce.
- Spread two tablespoons of the sauce to your baguette, place approximately three balls in the baguette and top with more sauce and cheese.
- Broil the sub for a couple of minutes till the cheese melts and serve.
- Feel free to form the meatless mixture into burger patties for instance, for a meatless burger.
- Left-overs can also be used for a spaghetti-meat(less) ball dinner!
- This recipe can be made in advance – the patties can be frozen and used to your convenience.
