Vegan Stuffed Eggplant

Vegan Stuffed Eggplant PinAmelia whipped up this Vegan Stuffed Eggplant for us as a low calorie dinner made from veggies we had in the fridge. We wanted to drop a few pounds so she’s been making us some delicious low calorie meals made mostly of fresh veggies, and this is one of my favorites!

Carving out the eggplant is the hardest part of this easy meal. I used a curved grapefruit knife to remove the flesh and that seemed to work well. Then I sliced it up to go with the other veggies that Amelia had prepared.

If you want to lose weight, this is a great recipe. It’s filling with all the fibrous veggies, but very low calorie. In fact, it only has about 140 calories so you can even serve this as a side dish with a Portobello Mushroom Steak. It would also be a really good lunch on a low-cal day or served with a delicious baked or boiled potato.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise. Scoop out the flesh leaving about 1/4 inch shell. A curved grapefruit knife works well for this. Chop the scooped eggplant and set aside. Place the shells in a baking dish.
  3. Heat the veggie broth over medium heat in a deep skillet. Add the onion, red pepper, mushrooms and garlic, cook until soft, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in the seasonings and the chopped eggplant and cook for another minute.
  5. Stir in the red wine and continue to cook until all the veggies are tender, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  6. Pour the veggie mixture into the eggplant shells. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until shells are tender.
