Stuffed Eggplant Boats

You can serve it as a main dish or a snack, it is pretty versatile and delicious way to eat your vegetables. We love feta, if you don’t, you can substitute it to mozzarella or other favorite cheese.

Here is step by step video recipe:

Tips for stuffed eggplant

Sliced eggplants get brown very fast, which means the have powerful antioxidants. You can drizzle them with lemon juice or wrap in a plastic to prevent this. However it doesn’t effect the flavor in the end.

You can use regular tomato for this recipe, but small cherry tomatoes add beautiful sweetness to this dish. Moreover, stuffed eggplant boats will be delicious, if topped with tomato sauce!

Feta cheese in stuffed eggplant

I made these eggplant boats with feta cheese, which adds tangy, salty flavor and is lower in calories than other types of cheese. But you can skip the cheese and add more tomatoes or choose your favorite cheese instead!

Eggplant salad

To my mind, these eggplants are better served right from the oven. But it could be a beautiful eggplant salad, served in edible eggplant boats too.

Eggplant can be frozen

This stuffed eggplant can be frozen for up to 3 months. Store in in the freezer bags or individual containers. Reheat in the oven for about 10-20 minutes until warmed through.
