Leave a comment

A delicious summer recipe that is gluten free and free of the eight most common allergens. This recipe contains no wheat/gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish or shellfish. Also made without casein, potato, sesame and sulfites.

Makes 12 Two-Bite Balls

INGREDIENTS:unnamed (1)

  • 8 1” slices of eggplant
  • ¾ c. finely ground Enjoy Life Perky’s Crunchy Flax Cereal
  • ¼ c. nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 c. finely ground pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ c. sliced fresh basil
  • 1 t. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ c. rice flour, or gluten free flour of choice
  • tomato sauce, for serving

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Finely chop the eggplant (as fine as possible, if the dice is too big the balls won’t stick together!) and put it in a medium bowl. Add the ground Enjoy life Perky’s Crunchy Flax Cereal, nutritional yeas, ground pumpkin seeds, sliced fresh basil, dried oregano and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  2. Lay a sheet of parchment next to the bowl. Form the mixture into 12 balls, rolling in your hands to make sure they are compact. Place on the parchment.
  3. Pour the rice flour in a small bowl and roll each eggplant ball in the rice, coating all around.
  4. Heat a small nonstick frying pan with about 1” olive oil until shimmering. Drop one ball in to test the temperature and increase or decrease heat as needed. You want the oil to gently brown the outside. Cook the remaining eggplant balls this way, turning to brown all sides, for about 5-6 minutes total.
  5. Remove to a paper towel to drain any extra oil and serve with your favorite tomato sauce. Mangia!
