Meatballs wrapped in aubergine in rich tomato sauce. The idea for a delicious dinner. Tips how to avoid putting too much oil into aubergine.

Aubergine itself contains trace amounts of fat. Unfortunately, it can absorb a lot during processing. What to do to cook aubergine to be soft without putting lots of oil?At the beginning sprinkle aubergine with salt (both sides) and leave it for 5 minutes. Then use "fry light" - special spray or grease the pan with towel paper soak with oil. Then fry both sides. 


  • 2 aubergines
  • spoon of oil
  • 250g low-fat mince beef 
  • small onion
  • clove of garlic
  • 600g of tomatoes from the can
  • salt, pepper, basil


Slice the aubergine. Lay out on the board and sprinkle with salt. Leave for 5 minutes and then turn and salt again.

Finely chop the onion and fry it adding one teaspoon of oil. Add chopped garlic and lightly fried. Put into a bowl. Add minced meat and seasoning. Mix
Mix tomatoes with spices and pour into a casserole tray.

Fry the aubergine (both sides) on the pan using fry light or paper towel soak with oil.

Then form meatballs and wrap them in aubergine. Arrange in a casserole in which there is a tomato sauce. Bake it - at least one hour at 180ÂșC.

I announce to all that this soup is my favorite. It contains a lot of complex flavors and  preparation is very fast. The soup contains a lot of vegetables, chicken and pasta, which is a bit like rice. Slightly spicy, with a hint of ginger and coriander. It was so nice that I think I will make it tomorrow once again.

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1cm ginger
  • fresh coriander
  • tablespoon of olive oil
  • salt, pepper, sweet paprica, hot paprica, nutmeg, turmeric
  • possibly a lemon to be served


Cook the pasta in salted water and then cool it in cold water. In a large pot, warm up the olive oil and fry the finely chopped onion. Cut the garlic and ginger. Cut the pepper into cubes. Put chopped garlic, ginger and paprika in a pot and fry for at least a minute. Add the diced chicken and fry until the edges are cooked. Pour the tomatoes and water / broth and bring to boiling. Cook about 15 minutes. Season well. Mix with orzo. Sprinkle with fresh coriander. You can serve soup with lemon juice.
