now this delectable i def want to veganize sometime...any thoughts on a good meatball recipe for this??

i think terry hope romero's white seitan in latina vegan would work well here, no?

The rice has sour cherries, saffron, pistachios, and orange zest mixed in it. It is served with grilled chicken and meat balls.

I've been working on veganizing a ton of Persian recipes from my youth (my best friend growing up was Persian, and I was at their house all the time)!

I haven't done anything meatball-like, yet, but the standard in Persian food tends to be lamb if it isn't chicken. I never had lamb before going veg, so I'm not sure if I can help you with that yet.
I'd probably do a mish-mash of a seitan recipe with the meatball recipe in v'con using kidney beans because I like the smoothness beans add to seitan recipes. But I've never had the white seitan. Alternatively, some kind of meatball recipe featuring lentils would also be a good flavor/texture component.

For the grilled chicken, I had huge success with my chicken kebab using the Isa Does It chicky seitan recipe with the grilling option listed in the book. They were heavily praised at the BBQ I took them to.

I can't really say anything about the flavor - but you could make meatballs from the chickpea cutlet recipe in veganomicon. Maybe mix in some cooked bulgur for additional texture?

thanks for these suggestions! curious what you're saying about kidney beans, never knew about that! i made that chicky seitan once, if i'm not mistaken, and i didn't like the result; perhaps worth trying again!

i'd be curious to hear about your persian versions... :) i made my first vegan doogh recently...including ziziphora for an especially authentic touch :)

Have you checked out the Vegan Eats and Treats blog? Amey does a No Rooz (is that right? I'm probably butchering it) feast every year. She might have ideas.

I really like Vegan Dad's tempeh meatball recipe, and have used it successfully with different spices to create non-Italian-style meatballs.

Although the book doesn't have veganized recipes and not all are persian, I have the Vegetarian Silk Road book and it is pretty good. It does include eggs in some recipes and I just skip over those.
