This is a healthy and tasty alternative to dirty rice. Also a great way to get the kids to try and love eggplant! I usually make this with one pound of ground turkey to reduce the fat and calories. To add even more flavor you can increase the onion and garlic if you like but we find it well seasoned as is. Sometimes we will even add some celery in with the onion mixture. Use what you have and what you like. Any color bell peppers are fine too! Red and yellow peppers add a nice color addition. Likewise, you do not HAVE to peel the eggplant if you want to leave the skin on. Just dice them up small. Another great color addition to a simple meal! Also, you can make this vegetarian if you use vegetable broth and leave out the meat or substitute TVP. Enjoy!
