Week 3 Cooking Group

Stuffed Eggplant *2nd recipe at the bottom of the post (two recipes in one, those are my favorite!)


Okay this wasn't a big hit with everyone, I think it was the rice mix I picked. But I have to say I loved it and I'm happy we tried something new.


1 box of Zatara's Dirty Rice Mix
2 Eggplants
Olive Oil
1-2 Tomatoes, chopped
1 cup Cook Chicken, chopped
1 cup shredded cheese

Follow directions on Rice Mix. Take Eggplants and wash and cut them in half. Place on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil. Lightly brush Olive Oil on the skin of the Eggplant. Cook at 350 for 10min. While the eggplants are cooking add chopped tomato and chicken to the rice mixture. When eggplants are done scoop out flesh and chop. Add chopped eggplant to the rice mixture. Stuff mixture into eggplants, top with shredded cheese and bake for another 20min.

Next time I'll use the Black Bean Rice mix. It's less spicy. I know it will be better liked that way. By the way we had leftover over filling. So I made *Enchiladas the following night with the mixture. That was a huge hit.

*Eggplant Enchiladas

Use Mix from above Recipe
6 Large White Flour Tortillas
2 cups Salsa (We had some homemade salsa we had just canned, but use your families favorite)
1 cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Fill shells with mixture. Roll and place in lightly greased baking dish. When done filling tortillas, pour 2 cups salsa over them. Top with shredded cheese. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese has completely melted. You can serve this with guacamole and sour cream. Enjoy.
