Spaghetti and Meatballs

It has been a very busy weekend of research and writing for me which meant there was very little time to make food. Actually, I had no time at all to make food and Vegan Mom was busy juggling 3 kids. Fortunately, we just joined a food co-op that has all sorts of reasonably priced vegan convenience food like Yves frozen veggie balls (and Silk soy creamer! Huzzah!). The veggie meat balls were pretty good, but perhaps a tad bit mushy. But, they certainly are faster than making your own. If I didn't mention it before in a previous post, spaghetti sauce is a great way to get veggies into kids who usually resist them. Process carrots, pepper, mushrooms, onions, etc., in a food processor and cook with the sauce. We also add in red lentils for extra protein since they dissolve when they are fully cooked.
