Eggplant ‘meat’balls

This was delicious !! I love eggplant
Another winner.

I tried these 2 ways to see which worked better.
Baking : I liked the texture better especially when pairing it with pasta. The outside gets firmer .
‘Frying’ I coated the pan with some olive oil and just turned them .While these got a nice golden brown color they were softer.

what you need
Eggplant
Parmesan cheese
Egg
Garlic
Italian parsley
Salt & pepper
Breadcrumbs (I used Panko)
Olive oil
Tomato sauce
Zucchini if doing zucchini pasta or reg pasta

Here is where I based the recipe off of.

Here are the ‘meatballs’ as I put them on and when they were done.

I love these vegetarian meals because they fill me up , feel satisfied , and don’t make me feel heavy afterwards.

These would be good to make mini patties and dip in tomato sauce too.

New cooking tool

When I saw this spiral slicer/ spiralizer I thought , ” How cool is that! I need one now.”.
I’m always looking to eat healthier and love cooking , so when I saw I can make zucchini or carrot ‘pasta’ I knew I needed to get it.
I looked on amazon and bought one for $19.95 with free shipping. (I used the money I received from crowdtap, so really it was free)
What I like about this one is that it is small, so it’s easy to store away. When browsing there were a few others that had additional things you can do but they were bigger. So this one was the right fit for me.
I didn’t make anything yet but I did have a zucchini on hand and had to test it out.
