Meat Stuffed Eggplants

Meat Stuffed Eggplants

Fun recipe to play with: eggplants stuffed with ground beef and vegetables. Nice combination of meat and veggies. I love eggplants!

For me it is always a bit tricky to hollow eggplants out, it is important to take most of pulp off to make sure they cook through, but it is also important to to not damage eggplant skin. It takes a bit of time and practice.

You can take bigger eggplants and slice them in half lengthwise, or take smaller ones and slice top part off like I did for this recipe.

Eggplant Roast with Vegetables

Eggplant Roast with Vegetables

This is nice looking dish which can be served as either a main entree, a side dish, or an appetizer.

It contains no meat, just eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese.

Eggplant roasted this way looks festive (and will for sure fit nicely on a holiday table), and it is also pretty easy to do.

One medium size eggplant will produce 2-3 servings.

Parmesan Eggplants with Tomato Basil Sauce

Eggplants fried in flour and egg coating are good on their own as a no-meat main course, appetizer or snack. But they can also be served as a side dish.

Tomato sauce with basil and garlic is a good addition to fried eggplants; it adds a bit of spiciness to plain taste of eggplants.

And parmesan goes great with that combination too.

Duck Stewed with Potato and Eggplants

I love duck meat. And other day we were lucky to find a couple of duck breasts in Market District opened recently near by (nice store by the way).

So, I got them, also eggplant and some potatoes, and cooked this nice dinner.

Any duck meat will work just fine for this stew, I was just lazy to remove bones.

Potato Roast with Vegetables

Potato Roast with Vegetables

Summer is here and summer is a perfect time to enjoy vegetables it brings along.

Bell peppers, eggplants, potatoes roast together with olive oil based dressing with garlic and herbs can be a perfect dish on their own as well as a side dish to meats or poultry.

Once veggies are all sliced and mixed with dressing (can be prepared in advance), it takes about an hour to roast them in the oven.

Roasting doesn’t require much of attention, just stirring from time to time. So I consider this dish easy to prepare.

Eggplant Rolls

Eggplant Rolls

I don’t have much to say about this recipe, it mostly says for itself: eggplants and tomatoes – main ingredients – are good combination and garlic doesn’t make it any worse.

This recipe isn’t much hassle to prepare and ingredients don’t cost much; so you can easy get to advised 5 servings of vegetables per day and even enjoy it.

Eggplant rolls taste better while fresh, so prepare them right before serving.

Eggplant Paste (Aubergine Paste)

Eggplant Paste (Aubergine Paste)

Here is an eggplant paste recipe how my grandma used to do it: all full of vegetable goodness, and I love its taste (still a bit hard to get it taste exactly the way how grandma’s is but I am working on it).

Baked eggplant paste makes a perfect side dish for meat or vegetable entrees, as well as it can be a great appetizer – just pour a bit on a whole wheat cracker, or spread it over a piece of bread and get a healthy snack.

Prepared eggplant paste can be stored in a fridge for several days and it tastes good cooled.
