Potluck Meatball Recipe

Here’s the meatball recipe that a church member used for one of our recent Sabbath potluck meals. She said that in order for the meatballs not to get too mushy, she would freeze them, put the sauce over it, and cook them together.

The Meatball recipe:
1-24oz can veggie burger or TVP, 1 c. dry & cover with water boiling
2 1/4 c. bread crumps
2 c. onion chopped fine
3 c. walnuts chopped
2 T. egg replacer
1-19oz pkg. tofu extra firm drained and mashed
1 t. garlic powder
1 T. soy sauce
1/4 t. liquid smoke

Mix well (may need to use hands to mix)
Roll into meatballs, place on cookie sheet, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Sauce for meatballs:
1/4 c. oil
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. packed brown sugar (She used cane juice crystals)
1/2 c. lemon juice
3/4 c. apricot jam (spreadable fruit)
1 c. barbecue sauce
1 t. oregano

Mix well. Cover meatballs. Bake 20 minutes covered & 10 minutes uncovered.

A Wonderful Sabbath Potluck!!

The vegetarian food served in my church embraces the mission of Christ, which is summed up in the first paragraph of the Ministry of Healing:

“Our Lord Jesus Christ came to this world as the unwearied servant of man’s necessity. He ‘took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses,’ that He might minister to every need of humanity. Matthew 8:17. The burden of disease and wretchedness and sin He came to remove. It was His mission to bring to men complete restoration; He came to give them health and peace and perfection of character.”

When I looked at this food today, I was thinking of the wonderful blessing I have to follow Christ. He’s given me wonderful food and a purpose in life to help others. As I seek to help others, my quality of life is so much better than it would ever be.

Here’s what we had for potluck this Sabbath:


These burgers were made from scratch:

Yes, that was homemade mustard & mayo! I’m not sure if the buns were made from scratch.

This was my vegan dish today:

This was a nice, simple dessert:

Fun @ Wellness Secrets’ Health Training Program

Yesterday, I enjoyed eating this apple oat casserole for breakfast during Wellness Secrets’ health training program.

Guests who came are seeking to follow Christ’s example in Matthew 4:23 to help people’s physical, mental, and spiritual ailments.

One of the water treatments we taught was a hot footbath, which helps aid with headaches.

Well, I have to go.
