Yield: 4 servings
|6||Italian or Japanese eggplants|
|1 cup||Olive oil|
|2 tablespoons||Unsalted butter|
|2||Onions; finely chopped|
|1 pounds||Ground lamb|
|3||Tomatoes; peeled, seeded,|
|2||Green bell peppers; seeded, chopped|
|Salt; to taste|
|½ cup||Finely-chopped fresh parsley|
|2 tablespoons||Fresh lemon juice|
Peel the eggplants lengthwise in ½-inch strips "zebra-style", leaving a ½-inch strip of skin between each peel. Trim off long stems so eggplant will fit in pan. Heat oil in a large, deep pan. In batches, fry eggplant until golden all over and beginning to soften, turning frequently. Transfer eggplant to a baking dish, placing them side by side, and cut a deep slit lengthwise in each eggplant. Set aside. Heat the butter in the skillet, add the onions and saute until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the lamb and cook for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, bell peppers and salt, and saute until all the juices are absorbed, about 5 more minutes. Stir in the parsley, and lemon juice, adjust seasonings and remove from heat. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stuff the eggplants tightly with the ground lamb mixture, enlarging the opening with your hand. Add a little water to the baking dish, cover, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until eggplants are very tender. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
