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.

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.
