Wild bison meatballs are amazing in flavor. We chose bison meat for its reduced fat content and fewer calories than traditional beef meatballs. These meatballs are garnished with sweet goji berries and rolled in chewy purple rice. These hearty and healthy bite-sized meatballs are great on their own as a main dish or as an appetizer.
