Just like a little mini quiche tucked into nice little eggplant ‘shells’ just beggin’ to be eaten! This is a great go-to recipe for a dinner party or when you want to make a few dishes a bit earlier since it’s served at room temp. Also a hearty fill for the vegetarians out there

  2. 2Chop the flesh & save the shells.
  1. 1Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until soft.
  2. 2Add the chopped eggplant flesh, celery, bell peppers and tomatoes, season with salt & pepper and cook over low heat for 15 minutes.
  3. 3Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  1. 1Brush an ovenproof dish with olive oil.
  1. 1Remove the pan from the heat & stir in the eggs. Fill the eggplant shells with the mixture and place in the prepared dish.
