There are loads of vegan meatball options out there in the supermarkets at the moment. I've tried the Curators, Birdseye, Future Farm, Meatless Farm and they all work really well! Be sure to fry them off first before adding the cream to help get the lovely texture.
Don't have meatballs? Simply double up on the mushrooms, why not add two types such as oyster and chestnut.
