Last week I was lucky enough to come across a buy one get one free deal at Publix for Gardein products. Normally I don’t buy a lot of imitation meat products, because they are expensive and highly processed, but I decided to splurge since they were such a good deal. I ended up buying 6 different bags of their meatless products and I’ve been trying to think of creative ways to use them. For the meatballs, I thought it would be delicious to cook them in a sweet and spicy Thai inspired sauce. I was right; they were fantastic.
The meatballs themselves are spiced with Italian-ish seasonings, so I was nervous that they wouldn’t taste right combined with the Thai sauce. But in the end, they tasted exactly as I was hoping they would; sweet and spicy with the fresh flavors of Thai basil, cilantro and lime punching through. I served them over some fragrant coconut rice and I received unanimously positive reviews from everyone in my family. If you try this recipe, let us know how it turns out in the comments on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
