Vegan Fried Balls. Dutch tradition, perfected with plants. Eat with a cold beer. Say no More.
Inspired by the traditional bitterbal, it’s the perfect snack with a cold beer. The fried balls are filled with a ragoût made from Japanese shiitake mushroom and Nameko and king oyster mushrooms. The fleshy structure makes it a perfect ragout mix and umami experience. The flavor is enhanced by seaweed flakes mixed in the ragout. Frying gives the balls that distinctive seaweed flavor. For the Balls, we use Ulva Lactuca or sea lettuce. This green alga is grown in onshore saltwater basins by Saline Farming near the coast of Texel.
Check out the ingredients of the Weedballs.
The Weedballs are completely palm oil-free. The pure ingredients we use are sustainably grown and local. Because not only animal rights but the well-being of the whole earth is very important to us. We believe it’s important that we not only serve you vegetable treats but try to make a few food miles as possible.
For example, we use soybeans from controlled cultivation, mainly from Europe (75%) and North America, of course NON-GMO. We now even test with soy from Dutch soil!
SEAWEED FROM THE COAST OF TEXEL
The seaweed that we use in our products is sustainably grown in National Park Oosterschelde by Rebecca and Jennifer from Zeewaar, the first sustainable seaweed farm in the Netherlands. They will soon receive the organic quality mark from Skal (the EU organic logo), making Zeewaar also the first organic seaweed farm in the Netherlands.
Seaweed is called the new green gold, and many scientists believe that this green plant can save our planet. What’s up with that? Find out why we love this power plant.
