Add the corn starch, parmesan and mozzarella cheese, half of diced onions, half of green peppers, nutritional yeast flakes, salt and pepper to taste.

Then add the bread crumbs and flour. Cook's Note: If your mixture has a lot of moisture you may need to add more bread crumbs and flour.

Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.

With your hands, shape the meatballs into the size of golf balls.

Dredge the meatballs in the flour.

Brown with a little oil in skillet or bake in oven until golden brown. 375℉ (190℃). ..your choice!!

??For the tomato sauce:

In a large saucepan heat up olive oil.

Sauté rest of onions and green onions for 2 minutes then add the tomato purée and salt and pepper if necessary.

Bring the mixture to a light boil, then turn the heat to medium.

Add the meatballs to the sauce and allow to cook for approximately 5 minutes. Plate and sprinkle a little soy parmesan cheese.

Have never thought of using eggplant to make meatballs, it sure sounds appealing and also healthier too. Have to give it a try, I will probably use dairy sour cream and mozzarella cheese :)
