A Story of Hunger, Sustainability, Creativity and a Yummy Ending

One day I saw an article on meatballs from around the world and was disappointed that my family (being vegetarian) could not indulge in these exotic morsels. I started experimenting with various grains, dried fruits, vegetables and cheeses. Pretty soon I had some delicious recipes that added great variety to our meals. When guests came over, they'd ask for my Meatless "Meat"balls. Now you, too, can enjoy four of my most delicious flavors, currently available in select stores.
