Vegan Eggplant Meatballs (Oil-free + Low-fat) #healthyfood #dietketo

I started composing this blog entry expecting to just share that I was enlivened by Chris' mother's eggplant meatballs I had attempted in New Jersey this past December, however it brought me to acknowledge exactly how great of a period we had there, it conveyed a grin to my face.

The way that positive (or negative) encounters with a given nourishment can impact our hankering and impression of it later on has constantly intrigued me. I read that positive relationships with sustenance give us comfort and a notice of social ties, helping us feel less desolate when we feel separated. When we have various nourishments related with explicit recollections, it can likewise affect how great we think sustenances taste just as how those nourishments make us feel.

While we were in New Jersey, Chris' mother made us these AMAZING eggplant meatballs that I ate with pretty much everything– servings of mixed greens, minestrone soup, spaghetti, and even only alone with some sauce or even ketchup– they were that great. I was really fixated on them, and I realized that I simply needed to get my hands on the formula.

These eggplant meatballs are sans oil, low in fat, and stuffed with plant-protein! A generous and exquisite flavor-blast flawless to awe a group 🙂

  • 1 chia egg (1 tablespoon chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 1/3 cups white onion, diced
  • 1 rib celery, diced small (about 1/3 cup, optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 unpeeled Italian eggplants, diced into about 1/2-1″ cubes (about 10.5-11 cups diced)*
  • 1 cup cooked garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped and loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup tempeh bacon (homemade or storebought such as Light Life)*
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional but recommended)
  • 1/4–1/3 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2–3/4 cups vegetable broth, as needed
  • To serve
  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Marinara of choice (or a raw vegan marinara)


  1. Make the chia egg by mixing the chia seeds and water together in a small bowl, and set aside to thicken for about 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F on convection*. Line 2-3 large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place 1/4 cup vegetable broth or water in a large pan over medium heat. Once heated, add in the onions, garlic, and celery, and cook until translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes (adding more broth as needed to prevent burning). Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. In the same pan, add another 1/2 cup more water or broth with the eggplant. Cook, stirring often, until it is soft, about 10 to 12 minutes. If needed, cook in two batches and add more broth to prevent burning.
  5. Once cooked, add to the large bowl along with the garbanzo beans, parsley, tempeh, oats, and basil. Mix until uniform, then place into a food processor in two batches and pulse until chopped and combined but NOT pureed. If needed, you can pulse and also mash down with a fork later on in the bowl to prevent a pureed consistency.
  6. Place the mixture back into the large bowl and add in the remaining ingredients (breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, dried oregano, garlic powder, liquid smoke, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper). Adjust salt to taste, then roll into 30-35 meatballs, about 1-inch in diameter. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet(s) and bake until firm and browned, about 20-24 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with marinara and pasta or zucchini noodles or even make a meatball sub in a roll with vegan cheese.
