IKEA has finally revealed the date Aussies can get their hands on the brand-new plant ball – a meatless version of the classic meatball. Ahead of its national arrival on October 6, IKEA Australia is giving 350 Australians the chance to be the very first in the country to taste a plant-based version of the classic meatball – with the exact same look and taste as the meat version.
Diners will be transported into a world where botanist meets elevated dining to indulge in a 3-course menu where well-known IKEA Food options will be showcased as part of a never-before-seen menu.
From October 6, the plant ball will be served with mashed potatoes, lingonberries, and cream sauce, in the same way as the traditional dish, and at the same low price. Customers can also purchase a take-home pack of frozen plant balls from the Swedish Food Market.
The new plant ball, a plant-based meat substitute, is made with yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple, but looks and tastes like meat. With a climate footprint of only 4% of the classic IKEA meatball, the plant ball contributes to the IKEA ambition to become climate positive by 2030.
‘Sustainable Dining: A menu better for you and the planet’ will be hosted in all IKEA Australia stores excluding IKEA Richmond, Springvale and Adelaide. Those interested will need to be an IKEA Family member and can purchase a ticket through an e-mail distributed today. Tickets will be sold at $25 per person.
