These Baked Eggplant Rollups are filled with a vegetable sauté and smeared with a garlic mayonnaise on the tops. This recipe is very easy to follow and tastes very good! 

Ingredients

  • 2 eggplants
  • 1 onion
  • 2 small carrots
  • 2 sweet bell peppers 1 red & 1 orange
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of mayo
  • 1 tsp vegeta
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black ground pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line two baking sheets with foil. Grease foil.
  • Wash and trim the tops of the eggplants off. Then slice eggplants lengthwise into about 1/4" slices. Arrange on baking sheets, lightly season tops with salt & pepper and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  • While eggplants are baking dice the onion, shred the carrots and finely dice the bell peppers.
  • Preheat a large non-stick skillet over med-hi heat and sauté carrots, onion and bell peppers until soft (about 7-10 min). Add the vegeta, salt and pepper to the sauté and transfer to a bowl to cool.
  • When eggplants have baked and cooled start assembling the rollups. Take the widest part of the eggplant and place 1 heaping tbsp of the sauté mixture onto the eggplant. Roll eggplant and place back onto the baking sheet; repeat with remaining eggplant.
  • Crush garlic and add to 1/2 a cup of mayo; stir to combine and lightly smear tops of the rolled eggplants.
  • Place into the oven and reduce temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Remove; slightly cool and transfer rollups to paper towels to drain from any excess juices. Cool completely before serving.
