  • In the meantime, preheat oven to 200°C.

  • Arrange bell peppers in a casserole dish with the open part showing.
  • Distribute the eggplant stuffing mix to the bell peppers.

    This was a lovely recipe, a little fiddly but worth it. I used dried basil, and although I did think it looked like a lot of basil I tasted it as I added it and found that it was an adequate amount. I grilled (broiled) my eggplant as it doesn't absorb as much oil this way. I did find after serving this that it wanted a little marinara sauce over the top. Could be a nice starter for a dinner party. Thanks!

    Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I chose this recipe for Zingo as my family enjoys all kinds of stuffed vegetables & I was sure they'd enjoy these. This recipe is so easy to make & the aubergine turn out really delicious. They are also nice to look at - you could do this wuth baby aubergines too for a great appetizer or starter. Thanks Marie for a fab recipe :)
