2. Slice it in half, cut out the flesh but keep the skins intact

3. Chop the onion, garlic, tomato, and eggplant flesh

4. Saute the above in olive oil until a good consistency

5. Add the chickpeas, almonds, rolled oats, and a dash of Bragg's, cook a few more minutes

6. Stuff filling into eggplant shells, bake at 375F for 30 minutes



Meanwhile:

Looks like one hell of a tasty meal. Can't wait to try it!



Quick question: should I boil the water with the eggplant already in it or add it after the water starts boiling?



Thanks!

This was really good! I added some sugar to the eggplant / chick pea stuff as it was cooking and doubled the amount of garlic. Since I was out of almonds, I added pine nuts and a little salt.

Ooh...I'm glad this got bumped. I'd completely forgotten about it. I think this may show up on Saturday's dinner plate.

this was quittte tasty.

i started just sauteeing the onion/garlic so they'd be softer, and then added my eggplant/tomato. i also added a bay leaf, dried italian seasonings, and salt/pepper to the stuffing.

this would be realllly good with some marinated artichoke hearts in it, too. if someone wants to try that out, let me know.
