Eggplant meatballs: you won’t be able to stop at one!

1 medium eggplant;
2 garlic cloves;
30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil;
1 egg;
50 g (½ cup) parmesan;
2 sprigs basil;
60 g (1 cup) breadcrumbs;
6 cubes mozzarella;
240 ml (1 cup) tomato sauce.

1. Cut eggplants into cubes. Transfer eggplant cubes in a large pan with olive oil and a whole garlic clove, season with salt, and cook for 10 minutes.
2. When the eggplant cubes have cooled down, mix them with egg, 1 chopped basil sprig, breadcrumbs, and parmesan.
3. Take some eggplant mixture and flatten it on your palm. Place a cube of mozzarella and add some more eggplant mixture on top. Make sure to cover the cheese completely, then roll the mixture into a ball.
4. Cook eggplant balls over medium heat with some olive oil, for 5-6 minutes or until golden.
5. Meanwhile, cook together 1 basil sprig, 1 garlic clove, and tomato sauce for 10 minutes over the low heat. Remove basil and garlic and serve some sauce on top of each eggplant ball.
