Butter Beanballs

Butter Beanballs

These little meatless balls can be used in soups, pasta, sandwiches or on their own as a snack. They can also be dipped in barbecue sauce.

To make them even healthier, you can skip cooking them in the pan with oil and just bake them for the entire time until done.
