Stuffed Eggpant
0

5 posts in this topic

As I mentioned in other thread, I had unexpected company on Friday. Three people showed up for barbeque, but I didn't want to eat hot-dogs again, so I made this instead. I thought, that I will eat it for week, but it was gone in an instant.

I found similar recipe online - Slovak recipes http://www.mimibazar.sk/recept.php?id=26622 - different stuffing and I made it my own. So here it is:

1 eggplant

olive oil

1 pound ground beef

1 egg

1 teaspoon dry basil

1 teaspoon salt for beef mixture

salt for ragu

1 Tbsp. dry garlic

2 cups of fresh spinach

1 big red onion

2 Italian peppers

3-4 tomatoes

1. Cut onion in half. Sautee one half for 2 minutes, add pepper sliced on round wide strips (just cut whole pepper on 1/2 inch strips, it will give you rings) and sautee for 3-4 minutes. When done, mix in sliced tomatoes (cut 1 tomato on the 8 even parts- cut in half and make 4 wedges from it). Place the vegetable ragu in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt

2. Wash eggplant very good. Cut it lengthwide on thin long slices (proximately 1/5 of inch, or 0.5 cm). Roast it with a plenty of oil on both sides until nicely soft. Eggplant will absorb a lot of oil, so add more when you need.

3. Sautee other half of red onion, when done mix with the ground beef. Add basil, garlic, salt, egg and mix everything together.

4. Take proximately 2-3 Tbsp. of the beef mixture and place on one end of eggplant and roll it around. Place the roll on top of ragu. Continue until you cover all baking dish. If you have any leftovers, just put them between rolls. Bake it on 420F for 30-40 minutes.

In meantime cook rice -white, brown, wild. Spread it over a plate and place 2 rolls in middle, sprinkle with juices. Eat with fresh salad, or pickles.

I made salad from 1 Italian pepper, 1 cucumber, 4 carrots, 3 scallions, 1/2 of leek, olive oil and salt

Cut Italian pepper on thin strips, cut leek lengthwide in half an then cut on thin round strips, cut scallions. Peal cucumber and carrots, wash them good and then with the same peeler make from them wide thin noodles. Mix everything together, add olive oil and salt. Let it sit for 30 minute before serving. Its very good.

It was awesome and a big hit. This is also a very quick meal. I will make it from now on more often.

Who can eat cheese, can add into the beef mixture little be of parmesan cheese, or 1 cup shredded mozzarella, cheddar, or Monterey jack cheese.

Looks good!

Do you cook the beef before rolling it up or does it cook in the oven like meatloaf?

What do you do with the spinach in the recipe?

No, I didn't cook the ground beef before. It will cook like meatloaf. The amount in one roll is proximately 1/2 of hamburger, so it will cook very fast.

I just washed the spinach and mixed with the beef- no chopping. If you don't have the fresh spinach, use frozen one.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
