Make an easy vegetarian meatballs recipe by using store-bought ground beef substitute. At most grocery stores, vegetarian ground beef substitute is usually sold in a tube in the refrigerated section near bagged salads and other produce. At natural foods stores, it's more likely to be near the other mock meats and vegetarian deli meats, though also refrigerated. Make these vegetarian "meatballs" vegan by using an egg substitute instead of an egg.
