Miso Meatballs with Hemp Hearts Recipe

August 14, 2012

Author Notes: I made these meatballs for dinner recently. They are fantastic! Full of flavour and the hemp hearts add a definite nutrition boost! When you first mix the ingredients, you might think it looks a bit wet. Don't worry the hemp hearts will suck up the excess moisture.Ceecee Lee
