Spaghetti & Beet Balls

As cold weather approaches, Sam and I start to crave comfort foods like chickpea noodle soup,vegetable stew, apple pie, peach crumble, pizza, spaghetti and well, beetballs. If you know someone who is trying to become vegan, but can't give up their meatballs... whip these up for them! There are so many ways to turn your favourite comfort foods into a healthy, delicious, vegan meal. This meal has been added to the carnivore approved vegan meals list.
