Ingredients

  • 5 eggplants medium
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 1 cup lentils cooked
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushroom finely diced
  • 1/2 cup tomato finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1 cup tomato sauce

Instructions

  • Slice the eggplants lengthwise into ½ cm slices. Then put them in a large bowl of water and salt. Set it aside for 20 minutes. This method helps to remove the bitter flavor from eggplants. Then steam-fry them in a small amount of oil and water in a pan covered with lid until soft. Then, lay them out on a flat surface like a tray.
  • Sauté the onion in a small amount of oil. Add bell pepper, mushroom, tomato and lentils to it and stir for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the seasonings and tomato paste to the mix, stir and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto an eggplant slice and then roll it up. Repeat this step for all slices.
  • Pour some oil plus tomato sauce into a pan and put the eggplant roll-ups on the sauce next to each other. Cover the pan with lid and let it cook for about 20 minutes or so over a low heat. Now your delicious eggplant roll-ups are ready.
