The split eggplants are baked in the oven until soft. The pulp is scraped out of the skins and added to the other sautéd vegetables then divided between the eggplant halves to create a lovely dish that’s perfect for a simple family meal or dinner for guests.

Ingredients

  • 2 small eggplants, halved lengthwise
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
