“I've been playing around with making 'meatballs' using some ingredients/techniques I've seen from other recipes. this is a nice substitute for regular meatballs, but don't drop them into a pot of sauce to cook... they'll fall apart after a while! I used Nutritional Yeast Flakes which you could totally make this recipe without. It has a kind of 'cheese' flavor which I like in meatballs :-)”
