I don’t generally care for eggplant, but I’d try that!
I finally found the original recipe and it was for minced-meat stuffed aubergines/eggplant with walnuts.
I didn´t want to use minced meat, because this was a bit of an experiment. However, I reckon you could stuff these fellahs with almost anything: chicken, minced beef, minced pork, lamb mince, etc.

This looks like a lovely recipe. :okay: You tagged it 'vegetarian option' but so far as I can see it is both vegetarian and vegan...
