Description

This Eggplant Pide is a delicious vegan meal! It is stuffed with creamy kidney beans and brown basmati rice to keep you full and happy.

What is a pide? Pide is a flatbread shaped like a long boat that can have various toppings. It is one of the most prevalent dishes in Turkey.

Since pide is made with dough, it isn’t the healthiest thing out there. Eggplants came to mind as a natural substitute!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE RICE:
  • ½ cups Brown Basmati Rice
  • 1 cup Water
  • FOR THE PIDE:
  • 3 whole Eggplants
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Crushed
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika
  • ½ cups Fresh Dill, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Tomatoes, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Water
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Red Kidney Beans, Drained

Preparation

Start by making the brown rice. Add water to rice and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until all water is absorbed.

Heat oven to 400ºF.

Cut each eggplant lengthwise and scoop out the middle. Save this middle part of the eggplant—we will cook it later.

Spray a little olive oil over the eggplants and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

While eggplants are baking, heat oil in a skillet and sauté garlic and onions over medium heat. Chop the reserved eggplant flesh from earlier and add to the pan. Add all the spices and stir.

Once eggplants start to get soft, add tomatoes and water. Stir, cover with lid, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 10 minutes.

Add cooked brown basmati rice to the mixture along with red kidney beans and dill and stir. Take off heat.

Take the baked eggplant boats from the oven and start filling them in with the rice and veggie mixture. You can serve them just like that or pair with Vegan Tzatziki sauce or SimpleFit Tahini Dressing.
