Ingredients

Directions

Place the diced eggplant in a small deep bowl. Season with salt and compress with heavy object. Let it stand for approximately 1 hour. Squeeze out excess juice and set aside.

In a small frying pan, begin to heat 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 cracked garlic cloves, hot pepper. When fragrant, add the eggplant and diced mushrooms for approximately 3 minutes until brown and crisp. Discard the garlic.

In a bowl, beat eggs, add grated cheese, black pepper, remaining 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, chopped fresh basil, and parsley. Add the eggplant, mushrooms, 2 garlic finely chopped cloves, and bread crumbs, and mix thoroughly.

Heat vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan or skillet. Wet your hands and begin to scoop 1/2 cup of mix to make patties. Start to fry when oil is very hot. Cook for 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from pan and place on tray lined with paper towels to cool and absorb excess oil. Serve immediately.
