Stuffed eggplant

One of my favorite low carb dinner meals - stuffed eggplant.

I used minced beef but you can easily replace it with chicken, turkey, pork, or any other stuffing you prefer.

Keto stuffed eggplant aka aubergine stuffed with minced beef and topped with melted cheese


• 2 tbsp butter

• olive oil

• 2 eggplants

• 500 g minced beef

• 1 small onion, finely chopped

• 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

• 1/2 red bell pepper, diced

• 1 tbsp tomato puree

• handful of grated cheese for the topping

• Seasoning: Salt, pepper, hot chili powder, fresh thyme


• Preheat the oven to 200°C

• Wash and cut the eggplants In half. Using a spoon, remove the soft flesh leaving just a little on the sides and the bottom. Lightly oil and salt the eggplants and align them on parchment paper in the baking tray.

Bake for about 20 minutes.

• While the eggplants are baking, prepare the sauce.

Heat 2 tbsp butter in a non-stick skillet and sauté the onions on medium for about 5 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and diced eggplant middle and sauté for few more minutes until soft. Add the minced beef and cook for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Add the tomato paste and seasoning and cook for about 3-5 more minutes, until the meat is cooked. 

• Once eggplants are baked, remove them from the oven and using spoon stuff each half with prepared meat. Sprinkle with diced bell pepper and cheese and bake for about 7-10 minutes until the cheese melts.

• Once baked, leave to rest for about 5 minutes and drizzle with your favorite hot sauce

Enjoy ❤️
