NuGrub Teriyaki Balls

Makes 10 Meatballs

Time: Estimated 40 minutes

Meatball Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup NuGrub
  • 1/2 inch fresh grated ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1/4 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 shakes of sesame oil
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup of water

Teriyaki Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 4 shakes of sesame oil
  • Chili flakes and pepper
  • Sesame Seeds


1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

2. Add all the ingredients (EXCEPT WATER) into a large bowl and mix

3. Slowly add the water until the mix is firm enough to roll and hold the ball shape. (you don't need to use all the water)

4. Roll into approximately 10 balls

5. Place balls evenly on a parchment lined a baking sheet

6. Bake in a 350-degree oven for approximately 22 minutes or until firm all around

7. Add all the Teriyaki Sauce ingredients into a saute pan and simmer on medium-low heat.

8. Simmer slightly thicken for 11 minutes stirring often. This will prevent the sugars from caramelizing and burning! Taste and adjust any flavors to what you like! Add more maple syrup to be sweeter or more chili flakes for some added heat.

9. After the NuGrub balls are done, toss them into the pan and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

10. The sauce should turn into a glaze by now. Top with extra sesame seeds and edamame!
