Baked Stuffed Eggplant


  • 2 eggplants, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 (1-once) slice bread (I used oatnut bread)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups diced onion
  • 1 1/4 cups diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced seeded cherry tomato
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Score cut side of each eggplant half by making 4 crosswise cuts. Place the eggplant halves, cut side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven; cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Remove inside pulp, leaving a 1/3 to 1/2-inch thick shell; reserve eggplant shell. Chop/smush pulp.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 350F.
  4. Place bread in a food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs measure 1/2 cup. Drizzle the breadcrumbs with olive oil and pulse to combine.
  5. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes. Stir in the chopped eggplant, bell pepper, tomato, oregano, and garlic; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in cheese, parsley, salt, and black pepper.
  6. Stuff each eggplant shell with 1/2 cup of onion mixture; sprinkle with breadcrumb mixture.
  7. Place eggplants on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated and lightly browned.
