Leftover Makeover: Stuffed Eggplant

Yesterday’s dinner was a delicciiouuus stuffed eggplant half for each of us – filled with tons of leftover goodness. This recipe is truly flexible, let your imagination fly to make a unique tasting meal – the more types or things the better! I made some chicken upper thighs with tomato, paprika, carrots and potatoes in the pressure cooker the other day, the leftover was the base of the filling. 



1 eggplant (half is perfectly enough for 1 person)
leftover chicken, potatoes, carrots, etc
cheese (I had a half mozzarella ball)


1. Wash the eggplant, remove the ends and carve out the seeds. Don’t throw them away!
2. In a frying pan, heat the leftover mixture and add the eggplant seeds – let it fry for a few minutes.
3. Fill the eggplant halves with the mixture, top with cheese
4. Push them into the pre-heated oven and bake for about 30 minutes at 200°C/390°F.

    Now you’re making me want to try eggplants! This is uber delicious looking!

  6. This looks really tasty. There is a Filipino dish that is stuffed Chinese eggplant with ground pork, onions, garlic, spices, battered in egg and then pan fried….it’s mouthwatering good. Now you’ve given me some ideas on what else you can stuff eggplants with!
