Gluten Free Meatless “Meatballs”

I don’t know about you, but spaghetti and meatballs is one of my favorite foods! I, myself am not vegetarian, but have been trying to incorporate more meatless options into my everyday routine! These “meatballs” don’t exactly taste like the real thing, but are amazing in their own way! They are protein packed, minimal ingredients, and take less time to make than regular meaty meatballs!

They are protein packed and almost tasteless, so they can be spiced up any which way. Now that you know just what you’re working with… let’s get started!!
