Stuffing-Meatballs-Blog-min-1280x720.png

If there were such a thing as a Thanksgiving meatball, this is it! These Stuffing Meatballs are made with Beyond Meat and were inspired by the turkey meatballs I grew up eating made by my Italian grandmother. I gave them a Thanksgiving twist with a sourdough stuffing (my favorite Thanksgiving side dish!).

My grandmother always made a gravy with her turkey balls. My Quick & Easy Gravy tastes great these Stuffing Meatballs. I served these for a regular weeknight dinner with baked potatoes (I put my Stuffing Meatballs in the potato!) and some sauteed Brussels sprouts. It was like Thanksgiving for dinner!

Gnocchi-2-Blog-min-1280x720.png

I love garlic! So, when I created creamy (dairy-free, of course) roasted garlic sauce in the recipe below, I really pondered what to pour it over. The truth is: It’s delicious on anything! BUT it’s incredible in this Creamy Roasted Garlic and Tomato Baked Vegan Gnocchi.

It’s rare that all three kids and my husband give a meal a thumbs up so when I received an unanimous YUM from everyone, I had to share the recipe with you! This is an easy weeknight meal. You can even make and store the sauce ahead of time if you want. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did.
