Materials for 4 people
4 small eggplants flasks
1 cup. olive oil
500 g minced beef
2 large chopped onions
12 cloves garlic chopped
4 boxes. of parsley soup
34 ripe tomatoes chopped and peeled
4 sliced ​​tomatoes
4 slices of toast cheese
Salt Pepper


Preheat the oven to 180; C degrees. Wash the eggplants and cut them halfway along with the stalk so that each piece has its own. Make a mark in the center of each eggplant and drain enough of its flesh. Remove the seeds and chop the crumb. Lightly fry the eggplants on both sides.

Sauté the onions in the garlic with half the oil and add the minced meat, aubergine, parsley, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Simmer the filling until it is liquefied and left with its oil only. Fill eggplants and cover with a slice of tomato and a slice of cheese on top. Put them in a pan, glue them together and sprinkle with the remaining olive oil. Bake for 20΄-25΄ and serve hot.


Traditionally baby eggplants are covered with besamel cream. The version we propose is lighter but very tasty.
