Stuffed Eggplants with Garlic Sauce

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!
