Our Favorite Eggplant Recipe

Of all the eggplants recipes I’ve ever made, this is our absolutely favorite eggplant recipe.

If you’ve never cooked or baked with an eggplant, then this is the eggplant recipe for you. It’s easy, quick, simple and full of nutritious savory flavor. It may look complex, but it’s not — you’ll just have to trust me on this one.

If you’ve used eggplants in our 15 Minute Eggplant Pizzas Recipe or our Easy Vegetable Baked Tian Recipe, then just proceed to the recipe. You won’t be disappointed.

These Stuffed Eggplant Rolls came out far better than I anticipated. They are absolutely delicious. If you love the flavor and texture as much as we do, then you may add this eggplant recipe to your menu at least once a week as a vegetable side dish.

Although, the first night I made these savory Stuffed Eggplant Rolls, they were the only thing on my dinner plate.

How to Make My Favorite Eggplant Recipe

This recipe is quick and easy to make. My husband fires up the grill, while I slice the eggplant and prepare the vegetables.


Grilling eggplant can be a little tedious. They cook quickly and need someone around to flip them and make sure they don’t overcook or burn. If you would rather bake them, just turn the oven to 400 degrees and placed them on a baking sheet for about 15-20 minutes.

However, grilled eggplant makes the best Stuffed Eggplant Recipe!


The two kitchen tools I can’t live without is my 5″ Santoku Knife and our Manual Food Processor. Using these two tools makes the vegetable stuffing preparation for this eggplant recipe super quick.

We us our Manual Food Processor for chopping up onions, peppers, garlic, mushrooms and so much more. Everything in this eggplant recipe can easily be prepared in the food processor.

There’s so much information to teach you… so, let me break it down to a few main points that helped my family and I commit to cooking with Xtrema®.

#1: Most cookware, even ceramic-coated cookware can contain bonding material and chemicals like PFOA, that have been shown to cause serious health concerns.

#2: Cooking at high temperatures on metal cookware can cause similar issues while also changing the health profile of your foods.

#3: In Xtrema® cookware, there are no PFOAs, PTFEs, glues, polmyers, coatings or dyes.

#4: Xtrema® cookware is FDA-approved and has been made from renewable raw materials.

We love the Versa Xtrema® set. It is the most versatile and easy to use.
