Winter Comfort - Hearty Stuffed Eggplant

Friday, March 16, 2018

It might be this never-ending winter that is finally getting to me, but I have been on a search for inspired ways to fulfill my comfort food cravings but not have card overload on a repeat. I have never been one of those people who enjoy healthy food, or ones that “forget to eat” I am hungry every two hours and need food to function. So I improved, I combined some of my favorite spices and added ton of vegetables to make it healthy.
What you need:
four eggplants
2tbsp of olive oil or butter.
500 gm ground turkey
2 cloves of garlic minced
half a red onion minced
10 mushrooms sliced
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of cumin
1 tsp of vegeta
1/2 cup bread crumbs or panko mixture
2tbsp of parmesan cheese

How to make it:
In a sauce pan combined turkey, onions, garlic, mushrooms, and your spices. Cook for about 10-12 minutes of medium heat. Stir occasionally.
In mean time, slice your egg plans, season with salt and pepper, place them in a sauce pan cook on medium heat till your egg plant is starting to brown, take it off.
Stuff eggplants with mixture, top with ptarmigan cheese mixture (mix parmesan cheese and crumbs)and bake for 25-30 minutes until the eggplant feels soft and the crumbs have browned.
*This recipe makes 4 servings. You can just add more eggplants and make more mixture and voila. You can use ground beef (it turns out just as good) or opt out for all vegetables option (I have never done it but it could work)

**My brother and dad are usually people who taste test all my food. Both love this but wished that there was some kind of sauce. Maybe a tomato sauce of some sort.
