Sweet and sour wheatballs


Sweet and sour wheatballs

1/2 cup uncooked bulghur wheat
1 cup water
1/3 cup greek yogurt
4 green onions, with tops, finely chopped
1 egg
2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp sweet and sour sauce, or teriyaki sauce with honey
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
3 clove garlic, pressed
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 cup panko
2 1/2 tbsp canola oil

2/3 cup sweet and sour sauce, or teriyaki sauce with honey
1 large bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup frozen shelled edamame beans, thawed
4 cup napa cabbage, shredded

In a mixing bowl, combine bulghur with remaining wheatball ingredients; mix well. Cover and refrigerate 10 minutes (helps it keep its shape when formed into the wheatballs).

4. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine remaining sweet and sour sauce, bell pepper, and edamame in microwave safe covered dish. Microwave on HIGH 1-2 minutes or until hot. To serve, divide cabbage among serving plates, top with wheatballs and sauce.
