Ikea's vegan meatballs have officially invaded this fine country's shores. Starting tomorrow, bold vegetable and flat-pack furniture loving Americans will be able to stuff their faces with simple to spell and easy to pronounce Grönsaksbullar, notes a press releaseAccording to the Wall Street Journal, the veggie balls — which will be available at IKEA cafeterias across the country — are made from a mixture of green peas, corn, carrots, that trendy green known as kale, and other vegetables.

The move comes after PETA put together a successful petition demanding Ikea start serving animal product-free versions of their famous meatballs. The furniture store will sell a plate of 10 Grönsaksbullar for $4.49, and you won't have to assemble them yourself.
