    Chopin Liszt's Note:

    The name is Greek for "little shoes", which describes the eggplant halves, filled with a mixture of chopped eggplant, ground meat, sauce and seasonings, then roasted. I like to roast them covered in a Weber type grill for the smoky flavor, but they are very good done in a regular oven.

    1. 1
      Cut eggplants in half lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Scoop out flesh of eggplants using a large spoon, leaving 1/2 inch of thickness to the shells (four halves are to be stuffed, the third eggplant is for extra flesh).

    5. 5
      Remove meat and set aside.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, chop eggplant flesh coarsely and garlic finely.
    7. 7
      Add olive oil to the skillet and cook the chopped eggplant and garlic until the eggplant is well done and soft, about 30 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add all ingredients, except shells, to the skillet and cook until everything is nicely combined, about 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Fill the shells with the mixture.

      Nice and easy, delicious, too. My husband absolutely loved it. I made two servings with a half pound of ground lamb, the chopped flesh of another small eggplant, one guajillo pepper (dried), smoked garlic, and one small (8 oz.) can no-salt-added tomato sauce so I could salt to taste. I also added 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of pine nuts to the mixture. I had some leftover fresh breadcrumbs which I mixed with the cheese for the topping, so it looks a little different in the photo than it would with just the cheese. We had it with some quinoa and a green salad, but bread would be great instead of quinoa. Whenever I see some nice smallish eggplants I'll be making this!
