Recipe Ingredients for Red quinoa and mushroom stuffed eggplant

1/2 medium eggplant, stem end removed
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz button mushrooms, sliced thinly
2 c baby spinach
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
4 oz greek yogurt
1/2 c pearl barley
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 c white beans

Recipe Directions for Red quinoa and mushroom stuffed eggplant

  1. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise, and scoop out most of the insides (leaving about 1/4" attached to the peel). Chop the insides and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion until it's tender, and then add the garlic and cook for another minute. Stir in the chopped eggplant, mushrooms, rosemary, and wine. Let this cook until the mushrooms and eggplant are tender and the wine has evaporated. Then add the spinach and cook another couple of minutes until the leaves wilt. Season with salt and pepper. Add this mixture to a mixing bowl with the egg, yogurt, and quinoa.

  3. Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until they start to pop (about 5 min), stirring frequently. Then stir the seeds in with the other filling ingredients.

  4. Place eggplant shells in a baking dish and rub the insides with olive oil. Stuff with the filling mixture, spreading any extra filling around the shells in the baking dish. Cover the dish with foil and bake at 400 for 25 min. Then remove the foil and bake for another 20 min. Serves 3.
