Homemade tomato sauce, vegan meatballs, and rice spaghetti

It’s a special night for (at least) three reasons:
1. It snowed!
2. Santa’s Secret beer is now available, and I bought some in a growler!
3. And it’s my birthday weekend!

We haven’t made this in awhile, so of course we had to tweak the recipe.  Instead of the flour, we used about 1/3 cup flax meal, which really helped the “meatballs” to brown. For the sauce, we just whipped together a quick mirepoix and lots of garlic, then deglazed the pan with some red wine vinegar. Then we added some whole peeled tomatoes (hand crushed), 1 can of tomato sauce, water, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Then the sauce simmered for awhile on medium, after the meatballs were fried, we added them to the pot. Cooked up a side of kale and a pot of rice spaghetti. Dinner is DONE.
