Stuffed Mushroom Meatballs w/ Creamy Lemon Fettuccini (V & GF)

Here’s a quote: “if you want to replace ground meat in a recipe, just use lentils” – my aunt. Expected something profound? I’m sorry, you came to the wrong place. I write poetry elsewhere. Mixed with the natural umami flavor of mushrooms, this recipe comes together to form an excellent replacement for real meatballs. Kim and I…

Y’all. These cupcakes. Vegan, gluten-free, red velvet cupcakes colored naturally by beets.
