Healthy aubergine, stuffed with lentils and rice.
Topped with a home made vegan cheese variation.
Good to eat cold or hot.
To be honest - I prefer them cold, the flavour of the aubergine is just more intense.
In a box they are very good to transport for a picnic or a lunch at the office. In this case I'd recommend to bake the aubergine a bit shorter, so they will keep their shape better.
And promised, if you follow the recipe, the aubergine will be tender and yummy and not chewy nor bitter.
The "secret" is the draining with salt and the pre baking.
If you'd fill the aubergine right away and bake the aubergine plus filling - they wouldn't taste as good, more spongy and maybe even bitter.
The filling with this recipe will stuff 2 large aubergine.
