Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. To a large baking pan add the eggplant, onions, garlic, tomatoes, spices and olive oil. Use your hands or a large spoon to mix (saving you a bowl to wash). Then place into the oven for 15 minutes.
Once the veggies are roasted add them to the food processor (you should get about 3 cups worth). Then add in the remaining ingredients. Process until you get a batter.
Using a large tablespoon roll out each meatball with your hands. Then place onto the same baking pan as the veggies. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Then increase the temperature to 425 for another 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
You can store them in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer for 3 months. If frozen let them thaw in the fridge before warming them up.
