A Bit About This Recipe

All That's Awesome!

In addition to fitting nicely into gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan diets, this dish is also chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. At the same time, it's low in calories and sugar. As a matter of fact, the low sugar and high fiber nature of this particular recipe make it diabetic-friendly. So, in addition to tasting amazing, it's also really good for you, so eat up.


Following is a list of the ingredients that I use in my dish. Remember, if you prefer to swap out some of them, feel free but try to keep the amounts the same so that you have enough to fill the eggplant! :)

  • 1 medium purple eggplant
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped

  • 1/4 red onion, chopped

Let's Make Gluten-Free Stuffed Eggplant

It's Quick and Easy, So Let's Go!

Start by cutting the eggplant in half lengthwise and removing the seeds. Then remove most of the flesh from the skin, being careful to leave the skin intact to use as shells. Cube the flesh and set it aside. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a hot skillet coated with cooking spray, sear the onions and garlic until they begin to become soft. Add the pepper, broccoli, mushrooms, and cubed eggplant and cook for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are beginning to get tender. Stir in the tomatoes, black olives, herbs and spices and cook for 1 minute.

Place the eggplant shells on a cookie sheet and divide the cooked veggie mixture between them. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the shells are tender. Top with cheese during the last 5 minutes. To really boost the flavor, add a drizzle of vegan balsamic vinegar before serving.
