Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small onion, diced
5 ounces of chicken breast, chopped
3 small bell peppers, diced (optionally, use 3 different-colored peppers)

cup tomato sauce
1 cup low moisture mozzarella, grated
6 ounces of shortcrust pastry (cut into 3 discs 4-inch in diam.)
1 spring onion, optionally (for garnishing)

Ingredients

Steps

1
Done

Cut each eggplant in half and discard the stem part. Then cut off its lower end and discard it. You are now left with the thicker halves of the eggplants.

2
Done

Place them into a baking tray and scoop half of their pulp out. Transfer this pulp to a bowl.

3
Done

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat, then add the scooped out pulp. Stir once or twice and add the garlic. Stir and add the onion.

4
Done

Cook and stir for 30 seconds and add the meat. Cook and stir for 1 minute or so. Add the bell peppers and, again, cook and stir for 1-2 minutes.

5
Done

Season with salt and pepper, add the tomato sauce, stir for 1 minute, then simmer for 10-12 minutes.

6
Done

Stuff the scooped eggplants with this mixture, top with the grated Cheddar, and cover with the shortcrust pastry discs.

7
Done

Poke holes into the pastry discs and try to decorate their rims with simple incisions, using a fork. Bake for 30 minutes at 400⁰F/200⁰C.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
