Low-fat Gingery Oriental Meatballs
2 green onions
2 tsp ginger, fresh ground
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1/2 cup fine bread crumbs (unseasoned)
1 1/2 cup water
2 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp white wine vinegar
2 tsp parsley, freshly chopped for garnish
Combine ingredients for meatballs together in a bowl. Shape meatballs the size of large walnut. Place meatballs on a pie plate and microwave until done (approx 8-10 min) turning once or twice during cooking. In a small sauce pan, blend water with soy sauce and add white wine to make sauce. Carefully mix cornstarch. Heat sauce slightly. Add meatballs to sauce pan with sauce and heat until bubbly and thickened. Sprinkle garnish when serving.
***During the first luncheon, as I was serving these meatballs, my friends could not believe that something that tastes so good was good for their waistlines, too!
