Okay, confession time ... I went vegan way before I had a chance to try authentic Swedish meatballs, so the ones I knew and loved came from a microwave dinner. But I won’t lie: They were my favorite meal of all time! I’ve tried to re-create the magic here with light, savory balls, made with tofu for chewiness and tahini for depth. The gravy is rich, creamy, and funky, just like I remember it. And I guess I am going to get booed out of Sweden when I say that cranberry sauce is fantabulous with these, too, if you can’t find the traditional lingonberry jam. Serve over pasta or mashed potatoes!
