Yesterday on WTNH News Channel 8

It was another fun morning with the anchors on WTNH News Channel 8. We made these delicious eggplant “meatballs”, such a simple and yummy meal. We use traditional Italian flavors in these “meatballs” such as parmesan cheese, fresh basil and parsley, garlic and Italian style bread crumbs.

Eggplant “Meatballs”.…  a healthy twist on the traditional “meat” ball. Vegetarian, full of fiber, moist, delicious and loaded with flavor. A unique dish.

First, you peel and chop up a large eggplant. Cook it with a bit of olive oil and water for 8-10 minutes until softened. Then, add it to the food processor along with a can of cannellini beans. Process until pureed and then add to a large bowl, along with all the seasonings. Roll into balls, spritz with some olive oil spray and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes and they will be golden brown. Toss them into your favorite tomato sauce until heated through and enjoy with a side of pasta. Delicioso!

Always a fun time on WTNH…. until next time!

Look at the staff enjoying this delicious meal!
