The Surprising Inspiration Behind Molly Yeh’s Meatless Balls Recipe

Yeh’s fans loved that her spin on meatless meatballs came from the mom of one of her ex-boyfriends. Not to mention, they had a fit over the lox and cream cheese bagel sweater she was wearing in the photo too. Hetty McKinnon commented, “Cute! And I’m all in for the meatless balls. Made some tonight actually.” Another person wrote, “you are the cutest Molly!!!! I LOVE your style, recipes and enthusiasm! Thanks for being such a bright force for good!!” Most people just couldn’t get over how funny the name was.¬†

One commenter wrote, “LOL!! The name!! can’t wait!!” Another simply said, “that name.” One fan showed support and explained, “we have a pasta called ex-Italian roommate pasta. Ex’s are so great.” But one person who has clearly already tried the recipe said, “we love your ex-boyfriend’s meatless meatballs.” As Yeh explained in a video for Tastemade in 2017, “Even though my relationship to him didn’t last, my relationship to these balls did.”

So, tune into Yeh’s segment on Drew Barrymore’s show and try the recipe, which consists of toasted nuts, garlic, cheese, and breadcrumbs, for yourself. You might even recall a recipe or two from your own exes or their families while you’re at it.¬†
