Now that we inch closer to those yearly resolutions, I’m here with my “Cauliflower Meatballs in Marinara Sauce” recipe that helps you attain the “healthy new you” in a whole new, delicious way 🙂
Last week, I visited Safeway for party snacks and I came across these FarmToFork™ Pasta Sauces.

Salt + Pepper
Cheese – I’m using vegan cheese, but any cheese can be used.
I love making this recipe during weeknights as it’s super easy and everyone at home loves it.
The meatballs can be made beforehand (2-3 days before or frozen for a week). All you have to do is saute the marinara sauce with some preferred seasoning and add the meatballs on top.
Making the Cauliflower Meatballs:
Frying Cauliflower Meatballs Method: you simply add 1 cup oil to a wok and fry the meatballs on low heat till they are golden brown.
Baking Cauliflower Meatballs Method: you place the meatballs in an oiled or parchment-lined baking tray, spray with oil, and bake for 30 minutes (400F).
Air-Fryer Cauliflower Meatballs Method: this is my favorite method and makes this recipe even easier. Add the meatballs in an air-fryer basket, spray with oil, and air-fry at 350 for 15 minutes.
<Apart from a great selection of ingredients, one of my other favorite reasons for shopping at Safeway is their mobile app. It not only has all the product details but also coupons to help us stretch our dollars further>
Once the Cauliflower Meatballs are ready, you can go ahead and proceed with the rest of the recipe right away or store the meatballs for later use.
The meatballs can stay up to 2-3 days in the fridge or 1 week in the freezer.
Once the marinara sauce has simmered for a few minutes, turn off the heat.
Transfer the sauce to a serving bowl and place the meatballs on top (as they are extremely soft, you DO NOT want to soak them for long).
Sprinkle chopped basil/cilantro and add some grated cheese on top (vegan or any variety you like).
Serve hot and enjoy 🙂
You can easily find FarmToFork™ Pasta Sauces in the pasta aisle.
I loved using the FarmToFork™ Marinara Sauce in not only this recipe but other Pasta recipes, too.
The sauce is luscious with simple flavors and tastes just like homemade.
