Easy dinner recipe

Cheap, healthy and easy. A perfect trio for a lazy weekend recipe! We’re talking about stuffed eggplants, of course. The vegetable originates from Myanmar and owes its name to the word ‘Vatinganah,’ which means ‘the plant that heals flatulence.’ Nice to know…

A nice additional fact: this purple vegetable contains lots of minerals and fibers. This means you’ll feel ‘full’ faster. Add some rice and minced meat, season it, and in the blink of an eye, you have a delicious meal! (Pssstt… don’t tell your husband this meal is a piece of cake, make him feel special!) Are you going to spoil someone with this easy dinner recipe tonight? 

Ingredients

  • Minced meat (as much to cover your hand)
  • 1 eggplant
  • 5 small tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • Fresh basil
  • Brown rice (2-3 handfuls)
  • Tomato sauce (2 tablespoons)
  • Pepper
  • Thyme and olive oil

Preparations

  • Boil the brown rice according to the instructions of the package and preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Cut the eggplant into halves and hollow out the eggplant (scoop out the insides).
  • Slice the scooped out insides of the eggplant into pieces.
  • Chop the onion.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half and hollow out. Chop the outside of the tomatoes into small cubes.
  • Pan-fry the minced meat until tender (in a dry pan) then add the onion, eggplant insides, tomato cubes, tomato sauce, pepper, and thyme. Cook it for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Drain the rice and add it to the minced meat mixture. Fill the eggplant shells with the minced meat mixture and wrap tin foil around it. Place in the oven for 20 minutes, take the tin foil off and bake again for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with fresh basil.
