This tasty vegan Pasta with Parmesan Meatballs and Goulash in tomato sauce dish I associate with many childhood memories. It does not only taste children, even adults are blown away by the cheesy balls. vegan | plantbased | milk-free | egg-free
Have you ever tried jackfruit?
Let me know in the comments below how do you like jackfruit. I love them to make fibrous structures into dishes. It is the perfect meat substitute when it comes to Goulash or pulled “pork”. With the right spices it tastes as good.
Which spices I use:
- smoked paprika
- Soy sauce
For the balls in the vegan Pasta with Parmesan Meatballs and Jackfruit goulash in tomato sauce dish , I take i.a.
- Mushrooms (which are really a great substitute in such recipes)
- vegan Parmesan (Recipe here)
- chickpea flour
- tapioca starch
And with appropriate spices, I have conjured up delicious vegan meatballs with a super cheesy taste.
A dish from my childhood
I guess you know, I live in the USA now. For those who did not know, now you know it. 😉 So far away from my home country and when I got the news of the loss of my grandmother, the world stopped for me. I really could not understand it and then being so far away, not be with my family. Made it even harder. And not knowing if I can make it to the funeral to fly over. So I had to do something that brought me closer to my grandmother and since this dish is the first thing I can think of, what she cooked so I had to try it. And I succeeded.
I wanted to share with you the amazing recipe for the Vegan Pasta with Parmesan Meatballs and jackfruit goulash in tomato sauce , which has a very high sentimental value. Now I am ready to share it with you. The last couple weeks I wasn’t ready for it.

- Drain the Jackfruit and cut off the core and trhow it in trash. Put the soft part in a bowl add all the other ingredients and cobine well.
- Let it sit overnight in the fridge. This gives a perfect flavor
- Put all ingredients in a food proccessor. Mix until everything is finely cut. It should be pretty dry to shape balls. If it is to wet you can add some flour or some oats. Or add some water if it is to dry.
- Shape Balls and fry them in a pan or air fryer until they are brown
- Set aside
- Put a deep pan over medium heat. Add some water or olive oil for frying. Put diced onions in the pan. Fry until they are golden. Add the jackfruit and fry it until they have the desired color. I love them brown fried.
- Add the tomato passata, and season with the spices.
- You can also add spices I would love in the dish.
- Cook the pasta
- When it is enough seasoned, let it cook for a couple minutes and add the bean balls.
- Is the pasta ready, serve it. We make always a leaf lettuce as a side dish.
