  5. Place the prepared pan with the meatballs in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. While the meatballs are cooking in a saucepan, heat chicken stock, Dijon, Worcestershire, cashew cream and bring to a boil.
  7. In a small bowl combine 1 tsp cornstarch and 1 tsp water then add cornstarch mixture to the saucepan to thicken the sauce.
  8. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  9. Once the meatballs are done, add them to the saucepan and bring to a boil again. Once heated through, serve immediately with mashed potatoes, or cauliflower and a veggie of choice and enjoy!
