Honey Sriracha Glazed Meatballs

Honey Sriracha Glazed Meatballs

 This recipe is super easy and you can look forward leftovers for lunch.  This meatball recipe makes about 40 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs.  Make a big batch of brown rice to serve with the meatballs, but you could easily use quinoa or even cauliflower rice if you prefer. Adding shredded carrots to the side offers a good crunch!  Top everything with some green onions and sprinkle on a few sesame seeds and you’ve got a deliciously FILLING and healthy meal all ready to go!
