Gigantic Meatballs

I got the main recipe from blogilates and made some adaptations based on what I did and didn’t have. Usually, I’ll make this over the weekend with 2 cups of brown rice and then portion it all out into a bunch of tupperwares so I’ll have meals ready for the entire week. They are wonderfully delicious, pretty quick to make (in terms of prep time), and also super healthy! :O Each batch made about 12, which was perfect, since I just portion each meatball into my muffin tin (it’s so much quicker/more convenient that way >_>). Each one is apparently under 90 calories and has ~14g of protein in it. :]

I wish the closest Asian market wasn’t over an hour away. These would probably taste even more amazing with sweet chili sauce, but oh well. I’ve been eating them with a side of brown rice and veggies.
