Filled Eggplant Rolls (plantbased)

Roasted Eggplant rolls can be filled with any delicious creamy feeling you can think of.
One of my favorites are Hummus filled Eggplants. But today I made two other fillings.


5 Eggplants
Olive Oil

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F
Cut thin slices from the Eggplant, then Brush Olive Oil on both sides.
Salt and papper both sides. Bake in the oven until light brown.
Take them out and let it cool off on the side.

First Filling – Italian Spread:

20 Sundried Tomatoes in Oil
1 handfull Basil
1/2 Cup Pine Nuts
1 Tsp. Dried Oregano
1 clove of Garlic, pressed or chopped
10 Green Olives

Mix in the Food Processor: Sun dried Tomatoes, Basil, Nuts, Garlic and Olives. Then season with Oregano, Salt and Pepper.

Second Filling – Austrian Spread:

1/2 Cup of Soy Cream to whip
2 Tbsp. prepared Horseradish or finely grated fresh (in that case, use less then 2 Tbsp.)
1 Cup of Soy Yoghurt
1/2 Cup Apple Sauce
Chopped chives

Whip up the Cream until stiff, then mix it with the other ingredients

To make the rolls, take one slice of Eggplant, spread a thick layer of filling and roll it loosely. Use a toothpick to fixate it.

Happy Guests – happy Emily
Kalh Orexh everyone!

I don’t know how the other Food Bloggers out there do it, but usually when I want to take photos for the blog it’s also eating time and everything has to go quite fast, as patience isn’t the best skill of hungry and hangry people. This evening it wasn’t any different, besides that when I make photos it never looks that professional. Here a little sneak peak for you guys (In the picture: Julian and his wife Mel):



and until next time: Keep it fresh and yummie!
