Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggplants
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp oregano, chopped (I used dried to my taste)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  3. Cut the eggplant in half. Place each half face-down on a foil-lined baking pan. Rub 1 Tbsp. of the oil over the eggplant. Bake 25 minutes, or until tender.
  4. When the eggplant is cool enough to handle, scoop out the insides and reserve. Leave about 1/2 inch of eggplant inside each half.
  5. Heat the other Tbsp. of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the mushrooms and onions until softened, about 6-7 minutes.
