Vegetarian Stuffed Eggplant – Ingredients:

– 4 large eggplants
– 1 cup couscous (uncooked)
– ¼ cup raisins
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 onion, chopped
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– ½ teaspoon paprika
– ½ teaspoon cumin
– ½ teaspoon coriander
– ½ teaspoon salt
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice

First, let’s talk about these ingredients.

Don’t be overwhelmed with the list of ingredients! You probably have most of them in your pantry. The combination of these ingredients is what makes this dish unique, flavorful, and healthy.

This is a simple recipe that’s easy to make, healthy, and delicious. You can customize it to your liking by adding more or fewer spices, or even adjusting the filling to include other ingredients you love.

Step-by-Step Process:

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Cut the stem off the eggplants, and slice them in half lengthwise.

3. Using a small knife, carve out most of the eggplant flesh (leaving about ½ inch of shell all around) and reserve the flesh.

Season the eggplant halves with salt and pepper, and then place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast the eggplants for about 20-25 minutes until they are tender and golden brown. While the eggplants are roasting, you can start preparing the filling…

4. Cook the couscous according to the instructions on the package.

5. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes.

6. Add the reserved eggplant flesh, paprika, cumin, coriander, and salt. Cook until the eggplant is soft.

7. Stir in the cooked couscous, raisins, and lemon juice.

8. Using a spoon, stuff the eggplant halves with the couscous mixture.

Optional: You can add some extra nuts, herbs, or raisins on top of the filling for some extra texture, flavor, and presentation.

9. Once you’ve finished stuffing the eggplants, put them back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes until the filling is heated through, and the eggplant is cooked to perfection.

10. Serve hot and enjoy!
