Stuffed Tomatoes with Eggplant

(Patlıcanlı Domates Dolması)

Stuffed Tomatoes with Eggplant
4 large tomatoes

1 onion, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Chinese or Japanese eggplant, peel, cut in cubes, soak into salty water for about 15 minutes, drain, squeeze the excess water
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp basil, chopped
1/3 cup feta cheese, cut in cubes
1 slice day old Turkish bread (or French or Italian), without crust, crumbled
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp crushed pepper

Cut off the tops of the tomatoes using a small knife. Then spoon out the inside of the tomatoes and cut them in small pieces, put aside.

Saute the onion with olive oil in a medium sized pan. Add the garlic. When the smell comes out, add the tomato pieces and eggplant. Saute for about 10 minutes on medium low heat. Then turn the heat off. Add the rest of the filling ingredients and stir. Fill the tomatoes using a teaspoon.

Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C). Place the stuffed tomatoes in a greased casserole dish and bake for about 30 minutes.

This is a great entree dish for dinner parties, especially during Summer nights:)

Hi Menar,
Serve the dish while still hot. I've posted so many dishes with Feta cheese. You can find Feta cheese in every supermarket in here:)

Nice dish!
I make something similar to this dish but use eggplant puree to fill (instead of the cubes)
Great website! Thank you.

Hi, I'm scanning your site to find an easy dish to make for our Girl Scout World Thinking day. My Daisy troop chose Turkey and we have to provide a dish. Can you suggest something that could feed a ALOT of people and fairly simply and tasty?? Thanks!

As you may have noticed, I have posted about 650 recipes till now. It is rather difficult for me to choose the recipe that would be to your taste:)
All the recipes that I have posted are easy to make and tasty.

There is a google search box on the right site of my blog, just below the google ads. So you can search on my site if "TC" is selected, it will help you to find any recipe that I have posted. You can also search the word of any vegetable or herb or meat or the region or spice, etc.

I have made many recipes from your book and love each! Many thanks.
I will say - what matters is getting the right spices ,and we have a hard time finding all the right biber here....with the current situation in Turkey, i don't see returning for a while.
Once again - thanks for such great recipes and simple instruction.
