Eggplant Meatballs

Mark Bittman, author of VB6, says that the more he plays around with vegetable-based meatballs, the more he likes them; certainly they're not the same as meat meatballs, but the different textures and flavors are terrific. To round out the meal for lunch, serve these over pasta, rice, salad or steamed greens with a squeeze of lemon.

Solid Recipe
January 14, 2016
The Eggplant "Meatballs" had great flavor, but the texture was just a little soft. I did not make my own tomato sauce, but rather bought some in a jar. I also topped the sandwich with some melted provolone. All in all, it was a really nice vegetarian meal.
Pros: Healthy, Easy, Quick, Good Value, Will Make Again, Adaptable

New Eggplant Recipe "Go To"
October 16, 2015
Our family participates in a CSA and it seems like we've been getting eggplant every week for the past two months! While they love fresh produce, my family has made no secret of the fact that they DO NOT like eggplant AT ALL! Until now. . . . this recipe was a HUGE hit! It is NOT a replacement for meat-meatballs, but is an excellent alternative - great blend of flavors, texture, and they ate every bite! We will definitely be making this again and again!
Pros: Healthy, Impressive, Kid-Friendly, Good Value, Will Make Again, Yield, Adaptable, Appearance

Hot Meatball Sub with Provolone....Please!
March 26, 2014
Having just made traditional meat balls for soup I thought I would give it a try. This is too easy. It comes together quickly and there are absolutely the right spices. The Chili is so subtle that it is truly a gem of an addition. The eggplant rolls into balls all too easily. Dampen your hands like making regular meatballs to keep the mixture from sticking to them. I followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of the sauce which I gave a quick single pulse in the processor to smooth it out a little (personal preference). The sauce is equally amazing and will be used for other recipes as well.
I cooked the meatballs for 25 minutes and then checked them and then let them cook for five more minutes turning off the oven for the last four minutes. This is a great go-to recipe and makes a great sub. open up a roll and layer meatballs, sauce and provolone and broil for a few minutes to let the cheese get fully engaged. Let it stand for a few minutes to cool and enjoy.
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: none
