Looks great and I am going to try it. Though I will say the nutritional values are not making any sense. It says it has twice the calories than sausage meatballs. Not sure if the information is correct

I searched for 'wheat free' and the first recipe offered is this one. How ridiculous can you get. Bulgar wheat is wheat with all the attendant problems.

Can we keep to discussing food and recipes on this site, please, which is what it is intended for and forget the inappropriate advertising as above.

Have to agree with dr fudge finger.... It looks horrendous !!!!

For a lunchtime meal this is rather high in both calories and carbohydrates, even if they are mainly grains and pulses. I'd probably want a nap after eating this!

I thought it looked and sounded nice but I don't have the ingredients. Calories all be it good ones rather high.
