Stuffed Eggplants with Garlic Sauce

Change language / Schimba limba: Română

These stuffed eggplants with garlic sauce are absolutely amazing! Really, they are the perfect, healthy, comfort recipe you can make this weekend!

Aubergines…it sounds so sophisticated, doesn’t it? Any word with a French origin sounds so sumptuous. Anyways, this is not a difficult French recipe at all. It’s easy, healthy and 100% delicious!

These stuffed eggplants have a wonderful texture and the stuffing is just perfect. This stuffed eggplants recipe was initially made by my mom and I’ve been making it ever since. She’s getting better and better at cooking vegan recipes! 🙂

The garlic sauces are great too. You can either make the vegan version or the yogurt-based one. Both of them are just as good. If you want to keep this recipe vegan, opt for the dairy-free garlic sauce.

This stuffed eggplants recipe is simple, easy and very filling. I love how all the colors and textures blend together.

Try it and let me know if you liked it as much as I did. I’m sure you will love this healthy recipe!

ok so i followed the exact recipe basically the garlic suce was a liquid but not soupy at all. the garlic gave it substance. my brown rice had some corn it and i think that was the only difference except i left out the dill. it was a delicious recipe i added the garlic sauce five minutes before taking out the eggplant since it was a single serving. placing aluminum foil over the eggplants loosely was not dangerous at all. very very delicious. :) thank you. and easy too.

Oh Great. I'm in the middle of cooking this and there isn't a temperature setting for the oven. Uh oh.

Oh, I'm sorry. I tend to forget to mention the oven temperature as it's different here in Romania. I usually set the oven to medium heat, about 180-200 degrees Celsius. How did it turn out?

Ruxandra, the recipe sounds nice, but the stuffing looks a bit overcooked or burned maybe? And I know about aluminium foil that it's highly dangerous when used in the oven too cook with it.

Really? I didn't know that about aluminum foil. Do you know any replacements for it? Regarding the stuffing, the eggplant changes it's color when cooked, also the mushrooms I used were brown, maybe that's why the stuffing looks darker.
