Oat & Kidney Bean Balls | Gluten Free & Vegan

Growing up I'd watch my meat eating friends devour their spaghetti and meat balls in no time, but of course it wasn't a dish I could or ever wanted to try.  Fast forward several years later, and here I am making these vegan oat and kidney bean balls.  I served them with rice this time around for a gluten-free meal option, but spaghetti probably works better for kids!
