Stuffed Eggpant

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.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
