Stuffed Eggplants

Eggplants are just the most versatile vegetable. They are delicious on their own, make the perfect addition to any stew or stir fry, or they can be stuffed (which is my favourtie way to eat them).  When cooked they have the most gorgeous crispy skin, melt in the mouth flesh, and are so good at absorbing the flavours around them you just can’t go wrong.

My Stuffed Eggplants is one of my favourite recipes, I just love it.  Stuffed full of aromatic lamb, coated in a garlicky tomato sauce, and all topped off with a grating of parmesan.

Eggplants are underrated and underused in my opinion and should become more of a staple on everyone's plates.  Not only do they taste amazing, but they are also SO good for you too.

Eggplant's skin is an excellent source of dietary fiber, folate, and potassium.  These are all essential for your body and your digestion.  They also have a high concentration of anti-oxidants and are great for controlling blood sugar.  There are also studies suggesting that they can reduce the risk of heart disease and have cancer-fighting benefits.
