This Turkey-Stuffed Eggplant recipe makes for a hearty meal, yet it is also rather easy to make, fast-cooking, and even on the healthy side. Describing the flavor of eggplant to someone who has never had it is a bit of a difficult task. It is technically a fruit, with a rather fruit-like, soft, and fleshy texture but with a flavor more like that of a vegetable, with earthy and softly spicy elements that go nicely with most any meat and with a wide variety of different herbs, spices, and veggies.
I think that this recipe has a delicious lean flavor to it, but if you prefer, you could easily substitute bulk sausage, ground pork, or even ground beef (though of course it would be a bit on the heavier side). For that matter, you can even use zucchini instead of eggplant, if you like the stuffing idea but aren’t exactly turned on by the flavor of eggplant. And the great thing about a main dish like this: with so much in there, you don’t need super-fancy sides to complete the meal. A simple salad or basic pasta dish, and you’re good to go.
