    Be sure to select an eggplant that is smooth, blemish-free and kind of heavy for its size. Serve with a green salad.

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 eggplant, halved lengthwise
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 250g pork mince
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon Italian herbs
    • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
    • 2 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
    • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided
    • 1 egg, beaten

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Brush cut sides of eggplant with olive oil and place cut-side up onto a baking tray. Roast in preheated oven for 30 minutes, then remove and allow to cool slightly.
    3. Meanwhile, brown the mince in a frypan over medium-high heat; drain off the fat. Place into a mixing bowl and season with garlic powder, Italian herbs and pepper. Stir in bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce, 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and the beaten egg; mix well.
    4. Once the roasted eggplant has cooled enough to handle, scoop out the flesh to within 1 cm of the skin to create a shell. Roughly chop the eggplant flesh and fold into the mince mixture. Divide evenly among the two eggplant shells, and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
    5. Bake in preheated oven until the filling has set, and the cheese is bubbly and golden-brown, about 30 minutes. While the eggplant is baking, warm the remaining spaghetti sauce in a saucepan over medium-low heat to serve with the eggplant.
