Swedish Meatballs: Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Nut-free

Unlike my First Try Friday posts, this recipe was tweaked until I liked it.

One of my husband’s favorite meals is Swedish Meatballs. And after gallantly tasting a few dairy-free options, he declared that he would rather have his own dairy-full version and give Joseph a separate sauce. Still, I wanted him to have something that tastes good, so I kept on tweaking and came up with this.
