Eggplant Balls

These hearty, delicious eggplant morsels can be used as a replacement for meatballs, or they can be fried into patties and eaten like burgers.

Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Pour in olive oil and sauté garlic just until lightly browned. Mix in eggplant and water. Reduce heat to low and cover skillet. Allow eggplant to steam until soft, about 20 minutes.
  3. Place eggplant in a large bowl and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Mix cheese, parsley, eggs, and bread crumbs into eggplant. Stir with a wooden spoon or your hands until ingredients are thoroughly combined and mixture can be rolled into balls. Add more bread crumbs as needed to make mixture workable. Refrigerate mixture for 15 minutes, then roll into balls or form into patties.
  5. Place eggplant balls on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.

Yield: 18 balls (6 servings)
