Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables and thanks to its versatility, I love making it in a variety of recipes. You can find a variety of eggplants at the market, in different sizes and colors, from the classic purple and large ones, to white or striped miniature ones. I love it and I really like incorporating it into my diet. I have a weak spot for stuffed vegetables and eggplants are no exception. You will love this version with a vegetarian stuffing, it’s so flexible that you can make whatever changes you desire and the result will still be delicious. MORE + LESS -
